With April showers spotting around this month, some of us are getting ready for the May flowers to come. Are you a gardener at heart and love planting flowers or vegetables in your spare time? Would you like tips or ideas for a new garden or maybe improve your new one? Or maybe you are new to gardening and would like to learn how to start your own. Well you are in luck because High Meadows Library has a collection of gardening books that can help you gather ideas, or maybe expand some of your own. Come by and visit us and check out some of the great gardening books in our collection. See something you like but isn't checked in? No worries, simply request the item and we'll hold it on our shelf for you.
Children love to get their hands dirty and April is a perfect month to start a garden. After a long day in the sun I like to relax by sitting down in my favorite chair and read a few books. Below are the books I picked this week to celebrate Spring. Enjoy.
The books listed below are ones that I enjoy reading each spring. My favorite book on this list is Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. This story is about a little girl named Alice, who becomes Miss Rumphius, or a.k.a. "the lupine lady." Her goal for herself and others is to make the world a more beautiful place. This classic picture book offers charming illustrations and a meaningful message for everyone.
