Stop in at the library in May for your free seeds, and you may be lucky to get a live plant too! We will have some cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, leeks, okra, eggplant, and some head lettuce for your garden. There could also be a few surprises. Register to win a cool garden gadget at the same time.
Gardening is a healthy, fun activity for children. They develop new skills and learn about science and nature from growing their own food and flowers. Toddlers, preschoolers, primary-school-aged and older children will all have different expectations and will learn different things in the garden. Pick up your May Sow Much Fun packet at the library. This will include seeds, soil, a plant container, and fun activities for toddlers and preschoolers.
Do you ever wonder where your ancestors are located? The library has a number of local burial records, and the Eden Lake and Old Eden Lake Cemetery records have just been updated.
Ellen Ellickson will be sending out the final Eden Valley Book Club email for the season. She hopes to resume in-person meetings next September in the library. Keep your fingers crossed.
We are starting to make plans for our summer children’s program, Education Nation. As the plans are finalized, more information will become available. Here’s a little hint: the children can look forward to topics like fishing and raptors. Hopefully, we’ll have a good turnout.
The library is open from 2-5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We are still continuing our COVID protocol. Masks are mandatory, and social distancing is required. Should circumstances change, there will be updated information on our Facebook page, on the door of the library, or on our website at https://eval22-org.doodlekit.com/.
