Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library
Hopefully our April showers will produce some beautiful May flowers. As you get ready to tend to your gardens, stop by the Bay Village Branch Library to check out our gardening books. Whether you're looking to plant a vegetable garden, need landscaping ideas, or want to find deer resistant plants and flowers, the library has a variety of books on these topics and more.
And, if you're looking for green alternatives to toxic landscaping products, join us for the Green Cleaning Workshop for Inside and Out on Wednesday, April 29, at 7 p.m. For more information on this and other programs, please see the list below.
