For All Ages
Westminster Branch Library has a garden plot in the Westminster Community Garden, located at East Middle School/Skate Park Gardens. And because hands-on gardening is the perfect way for families to get outside and get their hands dirty, among other things, we’d like you to join us in the garden. Each gardening season offers unique and engaging activities, so each week in the library garden will be different. There will be lots of garden-related activities throughout the growing season, and each week’s activity will be guided by library staff. Come grow with us! Work clothes are recommended. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please meet at the Westminster Branch on Saturday, 3/22; all other weeks we will meet at East Middle School/Skate Park Gardens, weather permitting. A Celebrating America program.

His debut chap-book The Dyer’s Notes on Indigo for the Belfast Book Festival was a local success, and his subsequent readings and publications have been described as spellbinding and a tour de force.
