Gardening Workshop, Legos & More at Library


The Alameda Free Library has lots of activities on tap over the next few days, including a workshop focusing on water-wise gardening from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 10, at the Main Library.

The workshop will be led by Lori Caldwell, who will discuss perma-culture and sustainable-gardening techniques.

She’ll also explain sheet-mulching, composting, bio-intensive edible gardening, hydrozoning and caring for native plants.

On Saturday from 12 to 3 p.m., the Alameda Free Library’s Writers Group will meet at the Main Library.

Kids activities at the Oak Street Facility include Mama Goose Storytime at 10 a.m. and We Love Legos at 2 p.m.

On Monday, May 12, at 5:30 p.m., the Main Library will host a free screening of the 1930s film “Diplomaniacs,” starring Wheeler and Woolsey.

There will also be a discussion about the Intimate Impressionism exhibit (in San Francisco) at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14.

Mark you calendars accordingly!
