Reading in the garden

There’s nothing like reading outdoors, by yourself or with others, in an inspiring and beautiful setting. Handley Regional Library is thrilled to share our new outdoor reading space with you.

The Mike Foreman Rotary Reading Garden will be a location for quiet reading for people of all ages, and will be used as an outdoor location for children’s programs and other events.

“Innocence” is the name of the statue you will find in the reading garden.

One of the many special things about our garden is the large chess and checkerboard with one-foot squares! We even have big chess and checker pieces which you can check out and use when the library is open – fun 🙂

“Let’s go play in the Handley Library Reading Garden. Their pieces are much bigger than ours!”
This Wednesday, September 11, we invite you – especially children – to come and help install the plants that are really going to bring this garden to life. Experts from Lowes will be helping volunteers with the planting. Grab some gardening gloves and come and join us at 4pm on Wednesday.
The Mike Foreman Rotary Reading Garden will officially open on Wednesday September 25 at 5:30pm. We’d love for you to join us – the celebrations will include giant games of chess and checkers!!
We have so many great books about gardens and gardening at the library. Come and see us and we’ll help you find just what you need for reading in our garden. Here’s a few recommendations to get you started…
Looking forward to seeing you in our garden on Wednesday September 11 at 4pm.
