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.
