Our library has always wanted to create a garden in our lovely unused outdoor space. We received a grant from The Illinois State Library to incorporate STEM principles to foster a love of nature and healthy self-esteem in our young patrons and made our dream come true. We had a special garden-themed story time and then spent the afternoon outside planting with the kids.
The Public Library Association published the story in their magazine PLA Online. You can read it here. Thanks in advance!
Remember, Green Thumbs Garden Club meets the last Wednesday of every month @ 6:30!

It’s the perfect time to collect the pretty changing colored leaves and create art projects with them!
