Community Read 2020 – Braiding Sweetgrass: We are pleased to be joining 24 local libraries for a Community Read of the book Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer. Copies of the book are available at the library, and we will have special events throughout March and April celebrating themes from the book. Join the conversation online with the Libraries in the Woods Facebook Page

We have created a Social Story for our library. A Social Story helps people know what to expect before their first visit. Please contact the library if you would like a printed copy sent to you.
