Library: Friends of the Library will help you see the ‘Splendor of a Summer Garden’

The Friends of Bossier Parish Library invite you to “The Splendor of a Summer Garden.”  It will be held on Saturday, April 18 from 1:30—4:00p.m., in the History Center meeting room with guest speaker Tony Thornton, Manager of Ellis Pottery Home & Garden in Bossier City.  This special event is free to the public.      

Tony will discuss springtime planting and garden maintenance.  He will offer tips on which plants thrive in full sun or in the shade, how to prepare the soil for best results, and much more.  There will be a Q & A period after his presentation so bring along your gardening questions. 

Those attending the event can enter a raffle and will also receive a flowering plant to take home.

The Friends are always looking for new members.  Pick up their current newsletter and application form at the sign-in table the day of the program.  You can also go on the library website at www.bossierlibrary.org to print out an application, fill it out and return it to any of our library branches.

I look forward to seeing you there.
