Lake County once bloomed with more than 200 plant nurseries and earned the title of the Nursery Capital of the World. Revisit and hear stories from that era during a talk from Lake County History Center at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 24, at our Main Branch.

Learn tales of the 14-year-old who planted some of those first seedlings, the men who stole to start their blossoming business, and the Lake County rose that guest-starred in a movie. This program is free to attend. Registration is required due to limited space. Sign up on our website or by calling us at 440-255-8811 ext. 1.

Speaking of plants, 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.
