Cabin Fever Gardening Series, Feb 6, 13, and 20, 10:00 am

Our winter has been long and icey.  We're anxious for spring!  Seed catalogs are arriving in our mailboxes - it's time to start planning spring and summer gardens!  Make sure to mark your calendars for the Library's new series, "Cabin Fever Gardening", on Feb. 6, 13, and 20, at 10:00 am in the meeting room.  The nature/gardening programs will be presented by a variety of wonderful speakers. This gardening series is free and open to the public.  During these cold winter days of February, this will be a perfect time to take in some fantastic gardening programs, start thinking about new plants to add to our gardens,  have a cup of coffee and meet and visit with new and old gardening friends.  Don't miss this new series!
