Library Garden Needs TLC

Alameda’s West End Library, 788 Santa Clara Ave., is asking supporters and gardeners to come by for some spring sprucing from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. this Saturday, May 18.

Volunteers should bring their favorite gardening gloves to help with weeding and clipping. Refreshments will be served.

In other library news, Friends of the Alameda Free Library just hosted a book sale in early May at the Al DeWitt “O” Club at Alameda Point. Volunteers say the book sales, held each year in May and October, raise more than $15,000 for the library.

Hundreds of book-lovers come from around the Island and the Bay Area to buy texts, music, art and more. It was a great success, and library supporters invite the community to get ready for its fall event.
