Libraries around the world!

Caherciveen Library

This past year I went to Southern Ireland and found the Caherciveen Public Library in County Kerry. The Irish is spoken in western Ireland and their collection reflects the dual languages. In our library we also have foreign language books that include Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone written in the Gaelic. Come check it out and see if you can pronounce the words!

Thank you Garden Angels!

I would like to thank the Friend’s of the Garden for the dirt, coffee grinds and plants donated to The Garden Club. Last week the children and their parents planted worms and worked all of the coffee grinds into the dirt. The soil is really looking good by the Pearl Fincher Art Museum windows. We have been watering that area every day so that our bushes will take firm root and will grow to be strong and tall!
