Banks library to host book sale, garden event

The Banks Public Library has two events scheduled (among others, more events here) in the coming weeks for April, providing patrons with opportunities to engage in gardening and pick up used books at a book sale fundraiser.

On Saturday, April 15 at 10 am, the library hosts a garden work party where participants are invited to help clean up the garden beds and plant crops. The event is part of the Homestead Series and is an opportunity for community members to support the library’s gardening initiatives.
