What's the Buzz about Bees?

Second in a series: Native Planting to Attract Pollinators

Hoping to create a more vibrant, colorful and productive garden? Julia Chambers, President of AFFEW Friends for the Environment, will discuss which native plants to utilize in your lawn and garden to attract bees and other pollinators. Adults are invited to attend on Wednesday, June 7 at the Ludington Library, 217 E. Ludington Avenue from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Join us for an educational night out. A free native plant will be provided for those who attend the live event.

Summer Reading Kickoff

Friday, June 9 is the Summer Reading Kickoff! Come to the #loveludingtonweekend party in downtown Ludington on Friday night starting at 6:00 p.m. to sign up and get a free book, or drop by the library any time during the day. There’s a reading program for all ages, so no one will be left out – prizes and fun rewards for all, besides the fact that reading every day increases fluency and comprehension! Our theme this year is “All Together Now” and our library is focused on creating a community of readers: we’d love to have you be part of that this year!
