SHML Seed Library is up and running! 
Participation is open to all interested gardeners. You do not need to have an SHML card in order to borrow  seeds. The seed library comprises non-GMO, organic, heirloom seeds. The seeds you borrow from  the  SHML Seed Library are lent to you at no financial cost. Users are  limited to three seed packets per year. SHML requests that gardeners return to the library a portion of seeds harvested to be placed back in the collection for future use, and that the remainder will be replanted the following year by the gardener.

Our Community Room Art Exhibit this month features
local artist, Sally DeCardy.
"I have always sketched, painted, sculpted, and, occasionally, produced a collage. In 2010 I found myself in a situation with limited work space and an endless supply of colorful paper delivered to my mailbox weekly (ie: junk mail). An opportunity was created and I had the time so my cutting and pasting started in earnest. In the last 4 years, I have focused my attention on collages and have completed approximately 30 canvases."
