Chrisman Library News

What a beautiful day last Monday was! It got me thinking about gardening! It’s time to pick out seeds and get them ordered. Maybe some of you have already done this. You are the smart ones! We expect to have the community garden behind the library again this year. My experience with the raised garden was very positive.
We gave away a ton of tomatoes because there were so many! It’s first-come, first-serve so if you are interested in renting a garden raised bed, don’t wait until it is too late!
We have many interesting gardening books here in the library. The newest one is Easy Peasy, gardening for kids is full of colorful pages of how-to instructions: grow veggies indoors, make newspaper seedling pots, make a wind whirler, build a bean fort and many other things. It might give a few adults some good ideas too!
Thanks to Don and Karen Tate for donating centennial books from 50 years ago. I just discovered another dozen of them under some pictures that they also donated. If you want one of the 1972 books, just come in the library. We are asking for a donation of $5 per book. Thank you!
