Upper Shores Friends dedicate outdoor reading garden

Nearly 50 community members, library and town officials, and Friends of the Upper Shores branch dedicated  their newly-created Reading Garden May 22.  A 15th anniversary gift for today & always, the garden provides a restful outdoor space for people to read, enjoy refreshment, and chat with neighbors. 

The garden memorializes devoted Friends by way of individual plaques noting donations of benches, tables, and the memorial arbor.  Special tribute was paid to generous donors during the dedication.  Truly a community effort, three area garden clubs will provide seasonal maintenance and planting of bulbs, shrubs & plants.

Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, the group moved indoors to enjoy refreshments and live classical piano entertainment by Lavallette sisters, Jacqueline & Juliet Taylor. 

 Thank you Friends, for this memorable event and for our lovely Reading Garden!
