On Friday, April 24, assistant librarian Joyce Soppe and ArborVantage owner Kevin Krings provided a lesson about trees and how to plant them.
Joyce wanted to do more than read a book about trees to the children during Earth Week. She wanted them to plant a tree and called Kevin to ask his advice on the best tree for the grounds and what needed to be done.
When Joyce explained her plan, Kevin told Joyce he would donate the tree and help with the planting.
In the middle of Friday morning’s story hour, armed with buckets and shovels, our favorite patrons filled their buckets with dirt and poured it into the hole around the root of the tree. There was more than one squeal heard when worms were found squiggling in the dirt.
