Reading Riot: Bealeton TAG Earth Day Garden Project
To honor Earth Day in April, nine TAG volunteers dug into the Bealeton garden, replacing flower pots and replanting flowers at the library. The gardening project has become an annual tradition with the teens creating a welcoming and beautiful entrance for library patrons. They came with shovels, gloves and enthusiasm once again creating an inviting splash of colorful fresh flowers.
All young adults in 6th grade are invited to join TAG, a cool way to get involved at the library, make new friends, plan events and have fun!
If you’re still looking for ways to give back to the community, consider volunteering to help with the Summer Reading Program. Applications are available at all library locations and online. Deadline to apply is April 30.
