Reminder: Books in Bloom starting Thursday

Southborough Gardeners' floral interpretation of book covers will be on display tomorrow night through Saturday.

Starting with a reception on Thursday night, the Library will be hosting Southborough Gardeners’ “Books in Bloom” exhibit “where the love of books and artistry in flowers come together.”

The exhibit will open at 5:00 pm on April 13th and remain on display through Saturday the 15th.

(Note: According to a message from the Library, during the period of the exhibit, public seating will be unavailable on the main floor.)

The exhibit concept is that participating members of the Gardeners use their creativity and flower arranging skills to create an artistic interpretation of a book cover. 

Recently, the Library shared details on who is participating and which book covers are inspiring their work:

As always, I’m eager to see what the Gardeners’ talented members come up with.

This is the club’s second Books in Bloom exhibit. The first, in 2021, was before the Library reopened its doors to the public. The display was outdoors, on the Old Burial Ground stone wall. As a result, arrangements were only available for a few hours on a weekday afternoon.

Fortunately, photos were posted on Facebook, where they are still available to enjoy (here). I included a few examples from the album below:
