“Thinking Green” in March

Our latest lobby book display reflects the fact that March is often a month when many of us begin to “think green.” All the books that we’re featuring in our display are "green" because they focus on gardens and gardening (especially vegetable gardening, in conjunction with our “Planning Your Vegetable Garden” program coming up on Thursday, March 10th at 7:00 p.m.). Can’t wait for spring? Thinking green and longing to get out in the garden? Stop in and bring home a book from our display!
