At the Library
To celebrate spring and beginning of summer, the Washington Public Library is starting its own seed exchange library. Basically this means that we have seed packets available to our patrons for free with the hopes that they will also consider donating seeds to the collection. We are lucky enough to have a starter set of packets of heirloom and organic vegetables from the Sand Hill Preservation Center out of Calamus. Plus, several patrons have already donated from their saved seeds! At this time, patrons are allowed to take two seed packets per person, until we build up our collection. Please consider donating your edible and ornamental plant seeds in the upcoming weeks. We can package them for you, as long as you provide the name of the seeds. If you do not have any seeds saved, please seriously consider harvesting your seeds in the fall.
Also, we are “Dig(ging) Into Reading” this summer with our summer reading clubs. We have programs for toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary, middle school and high school students, (and plans for an adult summer reading club later in the summer). Register in the library during the month of May!
