Reading and Discussion Group: Uncovering and Recovering Race in America

Wednesday, May 22nd at 6:00 pm
Main Library

book group

This monthly reading and discussion series will explore the inception, inculcation, and function of race in American society. We chose this topic to improve our understanding of systematic, and social, inclusion and exclusion in American systems. Our goal is to tease out the implicit ways race serves as a real, and imagined, force in the lives of all Americans. The book we will discuss at our May 22 meeting is Rez Life: An Indian’s Journey Through Reservation Life by David Treuer. This group will be led by Dr. Jennifer Thompson Burns. Copies of the book are available at the check out desk.

Contain Your Garden

Thursday, May 23rd at 3:00 pm
Main Library

small plantMaster Gardener and Interior Designer Denise Maurer will be presenting a workshop entitled Contain Your Garden prior to Nina’s Hidden Garden Tour.

You can get maxi gardening results in mini spaces. That’s the beauty of growing your favorite perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs or even trees in a container. And, since your garden is smaller, it minimizes the tending time. During the class you’ll learn how to select the right container, the plants that will work best for you and all the “nitty-grittiest” to keep your garden happy and healthy.
