Summer Library Workshop Series: East Branch, 8/1

August 1, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Groundwork Somerville is offering a series of three FREE library workshops for kids at the Somerville Public Library branches this summer.  Each workshop fits into the nationwide 2013 Collaborative Summer Library Program theme: Dig into Reading!

The third and final workshop, Dig into…Seeds!, will take place at the East Branch Library at 115 Broadway on Thursday, August 1st from 11 am to noon.   Kids will learn about how most plants start—as seeds! They’ll act out “A Year in the Life of a Seed”, play a seed-sorting game, and read about how seeds grow into flowers, vegetables, and trees.   They’ll also plant their very own seeds to take home and enjoy a tasty seed snack!

Recommended for kids ages 5-7; workshops are all free and led by Groundwork Somerville Gardens Coordinator, Lee Dwyer.  Thanks to the Friends of the Somerville Public Library for generously funding this workshop series!
