Beat those dog days of August at MVPL
Join us tonight for the Modern kitchen garden: Eat what you grow on Wednesday, August 14, 6-7 pm. in the Community Room. Presenter Patricia Larenas will delve into the basics of planning and planting your garden. There will be a raffle of edible plants to entice you further. To read her blog, go to: http://www.urbanartichoke.com.
Consider lunchtime yoga with Jennifer Dinalo on Thursday, August 15 and August 22 12:30-1:30 pm in the Community Room.
Celebrate the end of adult summer reading with a Downton Abbey Tea in Pioneer Park, Saturday August 17, 2:30-4 pm. A string quartet and dancers in period attire hoofing in the Edwardian style will provide a lovely backdrop for light refreshments. If you’re feeling Downton-inspired, dress up accordingly. There will be a prize for best hat.
Combine the tea with a stop at the Friends of the Library Book Sale Saturday, August 17, 10 am-4pm or drop by on Sunday, August 18, 10 am-4pm to sweep up more good reads and media.
If you have excess produce from your garden, visit the Crop swap, Saturday, August 24, 1-3 pm in the Community Room. Share/trade with others whose gardens outstripped their ability to consume it.
Tired after all these activities? Try Jennifer Dinalo’s introduction to Chair yoga (for those favoring a very gentle approach) on Tuesday August 27, 12-1 pm in the Community Room.
