April is National Poetry Month, and the Library has many books of poetry -classic and contemporary- for you to check out. Stop by anytime and make yourself comfortable at one of our tables and chairs and write a sonnet or two of your own. Be sure to join us for a poetry reading by The Village Poets on Tuesday, April 10th at 7pm in the Lora Hussey Room.
The month of April also brings rain showers that awaken flowers, greenery and green thumbs alike. Don't miss two upcoming programs guaranteed to inspire you to start digging in the dirt:
Spring Into Your Garden on Tuesday, April 17 at 6:30pm. Gardening presenter Kristel Tippins returns to the Library to teach you to create a raised garden bed, along with sharing tips about about nutrient levels, drainage, garden design, vegetable spacing and other topics. You'll start a seed pot to take home and taste a homemade sweet and spicy butternut squash bisque. Seating is limited and registration is required, so reserve your seat today.
Fabulous Foliage on Tuesday, April 24 at 7pm. Jo Ellen Meyers Sharp, of Hoosier Gardener fame, will take you on a visual stroll through a collection of some of the best annuals, tropicals, bulbs, perennials, shrubs and trees that make a statement by their leaves. This program is generously sponsored by The Village Garden Club of Zionsville and the Friends of the Library.
Happy Spring and we'll see you at the Library!
