Master Gardeners are well trained in the art of gardening and all that it entails. They are great environmentalists who can provide how to, when to and a host of other information about planting and maintaining your garden. They often host workshops to assist residents gain helpful knowledge for the upcoming gardening season.
The Baltimore County Public Library, like many others around the nation, are doing more to provide resources for their customers. While the shelves are still stacked with books, all branches also provide e-book options too. Another source of information is available through a bank of public computers available for customer use. However, the library goes even a step further in providing useful information to its wondering public.
Each library provides a host of programs in which customers can participate, from the youngest customers attending story time events to adults who have a wide variety of hobbies. Programs are listed on the Baltimore County Public Library website and are available in the program handout available in all the libraries. Customers are encouraged to use the website which is allowing the BCPL to be environmentally conscious by printing less paper copies.
Along with their commitment to the environment, BCPL will be hosting a Master Gardeners: Composting workshop as customers prepare for their gardens for spring and summer.
The Arbutus BCPL branch is the first to host this workshop in 2012.
