Gardening Thyme at your Library!

Spring is in the air and little bits of green are popping up everywhere!  As we welcome the warmer weather we also look forward to Gardening Thyme at the Library.  Thanks to a grant sponsored by the Mary Jane Berger Memorial Foundation, many of the Carnegie Library locations offer garden spaces and programs for patrons to enjoy.

At the Squirrel Hill branch, the Children’s staff dedicate the month of April to garden-themed programming.  Children in grades K-5 and their families can explore wiggly worms, create a moss terrarium, build a garden fairy house, and much more!

Do you have a green thumb or just like digging in the dirt?  Then consider becoming a garden volunteer!  With your help the Library garden will continue to grow.
