Build a Fairy Garden

It takes a village to build a Fairy Garden. Build a fairy garden for display at Levi E. Coe!

Join the Friends and build a Fairy Garden for display in our Shakespeare Garden. Call the library to sign up to make a garden 860-349-3857.

Residents, civic organizations, seniors, Scouts, readers! We need you to make a book-themed Fairy Garden. Fairy Gardens may be based on books in general or on a particular book, story, scene or character(s). Fairy Gardens should be dropped off at library June 20-23.

Fairy Gardens will be on display from June 25-July 9 in the Shakespeare Garden behind the library.

Make your creations in a container such as a wood box, flower pot, sturdy shallow cardboard box, basket, wagon, etc. All displays should be waterproof.

There is no fee to participate, but you will be responsible for the complete cost of your Fairy Garden. Of course, if using materials found in nature and/or items you already have at home, the cost will be next to nothing! Participants are free to take their Fairy Gardens home on or after July 9.

Qualifying plastics include: grocery bags, bread bags, bubble wrap, dry cleaning bags, newspaper sleeves, ice bags, plastic shipping envelopes, ziploc and other reclosable food storage bags, cereal bags, case overwrap, salt bags, pallet wrap, wood pellet bags, and produce bags.

Retired Flag Collection

Do you have a United States flag which has become tattered or soiled? If you have a flag in need of retirement, please stop by the Library. Boy Scout Troop 270’s Nick Planeta has built a collection bin for such flags. As his Eagle Scout Project, Nick plans to retire these flags in a respectful, traditional way.
