Welcome to the Aplington Public Library!
FREE Garden Seeds are HERE!!!
Before you go out and buy your garden seeds check at your friendly local library. Yes, we have seeds…LOTS of them!!! You will be surprised at how many. Everything from peas and carrots, squash and tomatoes, pumpkins and kale, and……You truly will be amazed at the variety this year. And what better thing is there to think about in the midst of this winter? Magazines such as “Birds and Blooms”, “Country Gardens”, and “Better Homes and Gardens” as well as the following books will spur your interest: 200 Vegetable-Growing Basics, Gardening Success, Starting Seeds: How to Grow Healthy, Productive Ve3getables, Herbs, and Flowers from Seed, and Kitchen Gardening for Beginners: A Simple Guide to Growing Fruit and Vegetables. Just looking at the seeds, gardening books, and photos of flowers is sure to lift your spirits and do your soul some good.
Keurig "Cups" are Here!
The saying goes: “You haven’t had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while it’s running.” Well, just in case you want to attempt that, visit us at the library and try out our new Keurig machine, compliments of the Friends of the Library. It’s sure to keep you moving on these cold, frosty mornings…maybe even well enough to thread a running sewing machine. And just in case you’re not a coffee drinker, there are ciders and cocoas here as well. And yes, decaffeinated coffee, too.
We thank the Friends for funding this venture and look forward to helping you warm up during these final days of winter 2014. And remember: “A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent.”
