Cultivating Community: Grand Opening of the Porter Branch Community Garden

April showers bring summer vegetables! Join us this Saturday for the grand opening of our community garden.

The Porter Branch community garden will be a demonstration garden for the community and produce will go to SERVE.  Join us to learn more about local farming and how easy it is to grow a little or a lot of your own food. 

Watch the garden's progress on our Tumblr site: librarycultivatingcommunity.tumblr.com
 

Activities include:

  • A special story time and movie will be presented and children can pot a plant to take home.
     
  • Jeff and Ginny Adams of Walnut Hill Farm will have a table and information about local farming.
     
  • North Stafford High School Horticulture Program will have plants for sale
     
  • Free packets of seeds, both vegetable and flower, will be available compliments of the North Stafford County-Garrisonville Rotary Club
     
  • The Master Gardeners will answer your gardening questions
     
  • The Master Naturalists will have an information table
     

This is just one way the library is Cultivating Community in 2012: www.librarypoint.org/cultivate.

Seeing Cinderella by Jenny Lundquist

What would you do if you discovered that you could read other people’s thoughts?

It’s not bad enough that Callie Anderson has to get glasses just before the start of middle school, but they are the ugliest glasses she has ever seen. Yet those huge, geeky lenses and fat black frames hide a secret. These glasses show Callie what other people are thinking. Maybe they will actually help her. And she can use all of the help she can get. She’s lost in math and Spanish classes. Her best friend seems to be drifting away. And her parents’ marriage is falling apart. But can Callie follow the eye doctor’s instructions and learn to use the glasses wisely?

Around My French Table: More than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours by Dorie Gre

Upon first glancing at Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table, I very nearly put it aside to be reshelved. It was too beautiful. Huge and heavy--laden with photographs--and featuring a cover shot of something that looked as though it took a heck of a lot of time, money and energy to pull off, it didn’t seem like something that would work for me.

But first glances can be deceiving. Almost every recipe involves relatively normal if delicious ingredients. The techniques used are not difficult at all for someone who knows her way around a basic kitchen. These are the sort of recipes which will be made again and again--and be shared with demanding friends. Each is introduced very charmingly, in a way that conveys much about the author’s French experiences.
