Get ready for the scent of spring to arrive in your mailbox via Library News. In the April / May 2016 issue, we ask you to come along and get your hands into the dirt to create hearty gardens for food and pleasure. We have all the tools you need for inspiration and execution this spring in our Lawn & Garden Neighborhood and with our year-long Master Gardeners series.

We also share with you some mind-boggling statistics. Such as 456,207 — that’s how many items your library has available to check out. The great news? We have so much more than a collection for you to utilize. Pick up your latest Library News or watch for it in your mailbox to learn all the ways we can help you improve your life.
