April Events!
April  Events!

Thank you Nederland!

Thank you for your donations and purchases to the Library Foundation for Unicef Ukraine. 
The Foundation will soon be sharing exactly how much money was raised, but there's no doubt the home-baked goods were a fundraising hit. 
If your sweet tooth and big heart are looking for another delicious way to show your support of Ukraine, St. Rita's is hosting their Ned-famous  Cinnamon Roll Fundraiser Saturday, April 23rd from 7AM-11am, while supplies last.  
Get in line behind the librarians!

Spring is on its way!

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need."--Cicero
Join Kendra Trauth of both the Nederland Food Pantry and the Nederland Library to learn how you go about getting in on one of the best kept secrets in town.

Erin O’Brien of the Mountain Communities Growing Co-operative (formerly the Seed Lending Library) will be on hand to share information about her mission of growing and saving regionally adapted plants and seeds.

We will also touch on a few basic high altitude, short season growing tips for those new to gardening in the mountains.
There will be give-aways, so please be sure to register for this event here.  

Enjoy our library art gallery.   

 Linda Jacobson is our featured artist this month.  She shares with us, "In all my art, I strive for a sense of wonder and awe, a feeling that a veil has been pulled back to reveal something unknown."

Literary Nosh

Thursday, April 21, 6:30-8pm

Have you ever wanted to bake your own artisan bread? It’s easier than you think!

Join Kendra for an evening of sourdough basics. Learn about starting and maintaining a starter, tools needed, and see a step-by-step process for a basic sourdough boule.

In-person registrants will receive a starter to . . . get started. Online registrants can request to pick the starter up at the library.

Light refreshments will be served – of course they will be bread related!
Register Soon – Spaces are Limited!

Japanese Spring Blossom Festival!

Saturday, April 9th, 10am-12PM.  
In much of Japan, the flowering cherry trees come into full bloom in April. April is also the month when the new school year starts for Japanese children. Cherry blossoms often make people think of new beginnings. Come and learn more about Hanami and the ways in which Japanese people celebrate the sakura through books, stories, and crafts! Drop-in; no registration required.  

Don't Forget about Friday storytimes!
