From the flyer: “Peppers require warmer temperatures, full sun, and well-drained soil. We will transplant 2 Pepper plants with lettuce.  You will go home with a 5-gallon grower bag, soil, a bamboo stake, 2 peppers, and lettuce. Come and enjoy the adventure of growing your own vegetables in containers that require little space and just a little TLC. Growing your own food is economical and healthy.”

Coming Soon – Story Strolls! Beginning in June, take a walk around the library yard to read a story while getting some gentle exercise! We were the lucky recipients of a North Country Library System Grant to provide this service to our community. The stories will change periodically over the course of the summer, and are geared towards families and children. Be sure to fill out the questionnaire at the end of the tale so we know you were there! Scan the QR code on your phone or fill out a paper copy and drop in the library book drop by the front doors.
