Sprucing up the Library

Spring is in the air and the Main Library is doing some sprucing up. The Horticulture and Forestry Club visited the Main Library on Saturday, April 18, to assist in care for our plant beds on the first and second floor. Overgrown vines and shrubs were pruned and maintained to offer better growth for the future of the plants. Fresh dirt and mulch were added to the plant beds to aid in the health of the plants.

Many thanks to Vice President, Andrew Scheldorf and the rest of the club for helping to keep the plants and trees at the Main Library healthy and growing.
