International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day celebrates the cultural, political, social and economic achievements of women. Although the title says Day, the entire month of March is Women’s history month!

According to the World Economic Forum, global gender equality is estimated to be achieved by 2133. This does not mean that we need to take away or discriminate against men. This year’s theme is  “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”

Sow Grow Reap Eat

Did you know that you can get 5 packets of seeds for free here at your Richard Burges Library? All you need is to stop by and show us a valid library card. You still can pick up your ‘winter’ seeds until March 19th.

Did you know that you can already transplant some of your seedling outside? Or you can sow directly into the soil. Right now you can start planting tomatoes, lettuce, kale, cabbage, and carrots.

Don’t get left behind in the planting season!

The Sow.Grow.Reap.Eat project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and Texas State Library and Archives Commission. (2016) .
