Help the Friends support the Library and its programs.

They also described a new project that they are planning to pursue at the Library – a bioretention project at the back end of the parking lot which will include educational and interactive elements. Details on these efforts can be found on the web site of the APCC. I am sure that everyone appreciates the challenges facing the Three Bays watershed, and these projects can be of some help. There is also information on that web site about what individuals can do to help to reduce the flow of nutrients into the Bays. We can all play at least a little part in this regard! Remember to check the Calendar of Local Events on the web site of the Association for information about things going on around town. Thanks to all for your support of the Association this year.
