Say goodbye to one of the snowiest winters in Indiana history and get ready for spring at the Library. On Tuesday, April 29, professional gardener Amy Mullen will talk about how to attract butterflies to your garden. Register online, and then join us from 7 to 8 PM in the Lora Hussey Room for a delightful spring program. (One lucky attendee will win a door prize.)
The Library's shelves are blooming with books for gardeners of all ages and abilities. We have a great selection of materials on topics including: organic gardening, companion plantings, lawns, perennials, herbs, vegetable gardening, shrubs and more. Nature lovers, in particular, will enjoy April Pulley Sayre's Touch a Butterfly: Wildlife Gardening with Kids which has colorful, easy-to-follow sections on attracting butterflies, bees, dragonflies, songbirds, bats, and, yes--even toads--to your garden.
