Ellington Farman Library
Ellington Farman Library will be celebrating Earth Day on Saturday, April 21 with a free event for the whole family from 10:30am – 12:30pm. Everyone is invited to learn how to make Seed Bombs and how to create a Perennial Garden with presenter Anny Lynch from Robert’s Nursery. The idea for a national day to focus on the environment started in 1970 and has been observed with events related to a healthy sustainable environment every year since then. The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. This is a free event for the whole family and no preregistration is required but would be helpful. Ellington Farman Library is located at 760 Thornton Road, Ellington. We are fully handicapped accessible and you may call 287-2945 for more information on this and other programs at the library.
