Activities for 2024 from gardening expert Melinda Myers
Melinda Myers will provide both a video and activity guide for each of these activities to our libraries that would like to incorporate them into their 2024 programming. Consider hosting groups at your library to do these activities together. Your library can also use these activities for your summer reading programs (ie: activity guides can go in summer reading take-and-make kits, etc.) or your library can link to these activities where patrons can download the activity guides to do at home. A web page (created by Melinda Myers) will house the videos and activity guides which can be downloaded and printed or shared digitally.
A special thanks to We Energies for sponsoring this program to make it possible.
