Once again, our Garden Volunteers did a great job planting and maintaining the library entry gardens. Each summer seems to bring its own unique challenges, and we are very grateful for the work that each of the volunteers does to keep the plants healthy and blooming. Library patrons really appreciate the splash of color that the gardens bring to the entrance, and we receive many compliments on your work.
On behalf of the Friends, thank you to Helen du Toit, John Iberg, Jo Travers, Bethanne Hinkle, Laura Dowling, and Ingrid Mayyasi for their continued efforts. Many thanks to our new garden volunteers, Alison Dana, Tricia Crockett, Claudia Miller, Betsy Nikula, and Claudia Brandon. We are very happy to welcome you to our team.

August --- DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
DeCordova is internationally recognized as a major venue for the exhibition and interpretation of modern and contemporary outdoor sculpture. The Sculpture Park occupies the entire campus: 30 acres of beautifully landscaped lawns, forests, fields, gardens, and terraces on a rolling site along the shore of Flint’s Pond in Lincoln, Massachusetts. At any given time, approximately 60 sculptures are on display in the Sculpture Park which is open every day during the summer. The collection includes works by significant twentieth and twenty-first century artists.
