Sow the Seeds of the Season

Calling all gardeners! 

Did you save some of the seeds from your harvest this year? We are accepting donated seeds for the Foster Seed Library to distribute next spring. We will package the seeds for putting into the library, but we will ask you what they are, any special characteristics, if they were easy to grow, and any other information you would like to share with other gardeners. If you need help preparing the seeds, we have several books that will give you directions. You can also get a free seed-saving handbook online at

As hard as it is to believe, we’re heading toward the end of the year. Mark your calendar so you don’t miss these events. On Saturday, Nov. 16 for 12–1 p.m. we’re Sliming It Up! If you want to join us to make a few variations call to register at (517) 485-5815. Classic Movie Club meets on Monday, Nov. 18 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Join other movie buffs to discuss this month’s selection. What is it, you ask? Call to find out.

Our little friends, 18 months – 6 years old are invited to drop in on Wednesday, Nov. 20 for a special Thanksgiving Storytime at 10:00 a.m., and to get you in the holiday spirit the Rooftop Reindeer will be in our parking lot on Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 5:15–6:45 p.m. After visiting the reindeer, you are invited into the library for cookie decorating and crafts. Don’t forget your camera or phone – the reindeer love having their pictures taken!
