Spring is fast approaching – although it may not feel like it! The Harwinton Grows Seed Library is officially open for the season! Come in to browse our selection of flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs. “Borrow” what you need; if your gardening is a success, you can make a deposit of seeds in the fall! Never started plants from seed before? Find out how at our Seed Starting Workshop. Not a gardener at all? Maybe you don’t have to be. Learn about the edible plants that may already be a part of your yard when Karen Monger of The Three Foragers presents Your Edible Landscape.

Winter Story Times are in full swing. Join Miss Molly for books, songs, crafts and activities. Please help us welcome Connecticut children’s author Doe Boyle for a special story time program on March 25th. Doe teaches important science concepts through charming picture books. She’ll share some of her writing as well as hands-on crafts and activities.

Interested in tracing your roots? Contact the Library to schedule a free one-on-one genealogy session with Harwinton Town Historian Susan Fenn McClen. Susan has been active in the genealogy field for 30 years and is a member of over 20 lineage societies. Whether you are a beginner or have specific questions from your own research, Susan can help.

What Are We Reading This Month?

Staff Pic of the Month

The Midnight Library
by Matthew Haig

Book Cover

This thought-provoking book brings about the question, what would you do if you could live an infinite number of lives? Sometimes it is hard to find a reason to live, but everyone will find one eventually, whether it takes living through one life or a hundred. This is a beautiful book of love, compassion, adventure, and joy even in the darkest of places.

Apples Never Fall
by Liane Moriarty

Book Cover

The Delaney family love one another dearly—it’s just that sometimes they want to murder each other. If your mother was missing, would you tell the police? Even if the most obvious suspect was your father? This is the dilemma facing the four grown Delaney siblings. Copies are available to borrow. Join us!
