The Book Seller is Open
TROY – The Book Seller is once again open Saturdays from 10 to 2 at the Lansingburgh Library. We offer gently used books of all types, plus CDs.
The Book Seller is a project of the Friends of the Troy Public Library. All proceeds go to adding programs and services at the library, both at Main and the Lansingburgh Branch. For more info go to www.friendsofthetroylibrary.org or follow us on Facebook at firstname.lastname@example.org
TROY – Master Gardener and Interior Designer Denise Maurer will be presenting a workshop entitled Stunning Succulents on Monday, May 10th at 6:30PM, for the Troy Public Library.
You’ve got to love succulents. Give them plenty of sun, and water occasionally, and they will reward you with show stopping textures, colors and offspring. Learn how easy it is to incorporate them into your home- and landscapes. Buying and growing tips will be included along with plenty of inspiration to create succulent dish gardens and vertical mosaics.
This program will be conducted via zoom. Please register using your email address so that we can send you a link to the presentation. This program is free and open to the public. Please register online at www.thetroylibrary.org or by calling (518)274-7071.
