Some seeds available, more to come
We do have a few packets of locally grown seeds to share, with more to come. This year we'll be supplying seeds to direct plant in the garden rather than stuff to start indoors. We do have 3 packets of Green Zebra Tomato Seeds donated, first come, first serve.
2 Packets of Pencil Pod Black Seeded Wax Beans, 1 left over from last year, 1 new harvest
1 packet of Garlic Chives seeds, variety unknown.
1 packet of Sutton's Harbinger peas (I grew these in window boxes out on my porch).
1 packet Golden Sweet Pea, note says: very productive, about 68 days to maturity.
2 packets of Maxibel Bean, note says: can be eaten fresh or dried.

Featuring books available through Freading, a downloadable eBook service for Warren Library card holders.
In 1980, a twenty-three-year-old student named Aaron Lansky set out to rescue the world’s abandoned Yiddish books before it was too late. Twenty-five years and one and a half million books later, he’s still in the midst of a great adventure. Filled with poignant and often laugh-out-loud tales from Lansky’s travels across the country as he collected books from older Jewish immigrants—books their own children had no use for—Outwitting History also explores brilliant Yiddish writers and enables us to see how an almost-lost culture is the bridge between the Old World and the future.
