A Note from the Director:
Do you like to garden? Would you like to try planting a vegetable garden but don't know how to start? Not only is it satisfying to grow your own vegetables, but think of the money you save and how fresh the produce is when you can go out to your yard and pick your own! HTFL has a great collection of gardening books for checkout to help you get started. Stop by and see what we have to offer from books on growing in containers to solutions on how to avoid "garden pests."
Then, after your bountiful garden is ready to pick, take a look at all the new cookbooks we have or books on how to can and preserve.
Remember, we have something for everyone at your library!
Thank you, as always, and if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact me.
