On Wednesday, March 20, the Petworth Library Children's Room welcomed spring.
We learned what seeds need to grow, we read some poems and books about seeds and plants, and then we planted seeds! Each child was able to plant one flower (daisy, sunflower, morning glory) and one vegetable (green bean, spinach, carrot).

Stay tuned here for the next fun children's program!
