Library Garden Dedication + 2017 Annual Meeting

Please join us at the Friends of the Irvington Library Annual Meeting on July 9 at 2:00 p.m. where we will dedicate and unveil the Library Reading Garden created to honor Pamela Strachan (Library Director 2005-2014) for her lifelong passion for literacy and the positive impact she has had on the Village.

We will also have a fascinating presentation by bestselling garden author, NYBG landscape and horticulture teacher, Marta McDowell about her new book, All the Presidents’ Gardens: Madison’s Cabbages to Kennedy’s Roses—How the White House Grounds Have Grown with America, starting with plant-obsessed George Washington and ending with Michelle Obama’s kitchen garden.
