You've probably heard the expression, "April showers bring May flowers," before. I know I did and often still do. Spring is a time when we frequently think about flowers blooming and grass starting to turn green again. It tends to be a lively, beautiful time of year. However, I always think of spring kind of wistfully.
It seems every spring, I think about, plan, and sometimes attempt to grow something. Despite my grandma being a florist, I did not inherit her green thumb. I've thrown out more unrecognizable vegetation than I care to admit. There is one plant I feel confident about planting, and that's succulents.
Succulents are very forgiving plants needing very little water. They also come in a surprising number of colors. It's a plant that I feel the plant novice and pro can enjoy together.
This spring we will be offering a chance to flex your creative skills and some plant-time cheer through 2 drop-in library programs.
On Monday, April 24th the first program will be happening at the main branch. Teens, ages 11-18, can drop in without registration anytime between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. We will be putting together succulent planters and picking mini succulents in the Teen Activity room.
On Tuesday, May 9th we will be having a similar program at the North branch. This program is also a drop-in and will go from 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. This program is also open to Tweens, ages 9-18, and will be in the community room.
If you're looking for a little springtime cheer we hope to see you there.
