Join us to discuss E.O. Wilson’s “Half-Earth” during the next meeting of our Gathering Moss Book Club.

All are invited to the Gathering Moss Book Club – our new book club for nature lovers, green thumbs and anyone else interested in the natural world around them

We’ll meet at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15, at the Mentor Headlands Community Center (9096 Lake Overlook Drive, Mentor.) We’ll talk about popular naturalist Edward O. Wilson’s Half-Earth: Our Planet’s Fight for Life.

Register online or call our Headlands Branch at (440) 257-2000 to RSVP for the discussion.

Two more tips for any green thumbs out there:

1. Did you know that you can get free veggie, flower, and herb seeds from our Seed Library? Check out our collection  the next time you visit our Main Branch. Borrow up to 15 packets of seeds per season.

2. By the way, any green thumbs should check out the special collection from Holden Forests & Gardens’ Corning Library available at our Main Branch. In addition to a gorgeous arboretum in Kirtland, Holden also has a spectacular collection of gardening, horticulture, environmental and botany books at Corning Library within its arboretum.

Dozens of Corning Library’s books are now available to borrow at our Main Branch. Thanks to a partnership between libraries, you can use your cards to check out books from this special collection. Our typical lending rules apply.
