Book Group

Book Group!  Our book group meets on the 4th Tues. of each month from 7-8:30

This month we are reading Fannie Flagg's - "The All Girl Filling Stations Last Reunion"  329 pages
Fabulous, fun-filled, spanning decades and generations, and centered on a little-known aspect of America's twentieth-center story, "The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion" is another irresistible novel by the remarkable Fannie Flagg.

Gardening

Winter is gone at last and we can finally get outside. What a wonderful time to start a garden or to spend some time nurturing the plants that made it through our brutal winter. Your community library can help. We have a large and diverse collection of books to assist you with your soil conditioning, plant choice, or pest control technique. We also have selections to help you design and build your own rock garden or fountains and waterfalls for those who want a garden that does not grow.
To see our complete selection stop by the library or check us out at LibraryThing at
http://www.librarything.com/profile/CollegeParkComLib and type GARDENING in the search box.

Folks over Knives  - This 2011 film examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.  It advocates a low-fat, whole -food, plant-based diet as a means of combating these diseases.
