Have you ever been curious about learning to make jewelry but didn’t want to commit to buying all the tools just yet? As part of our Maker Space the library will now be loaning out a toolbox with all the basic tools needed for jewelry work. The kit will be loaned out for one week. Take a peek at what real craft skills can do with a few tools at: www.dreamland-photography.com

As many patrons have noticed, the great redwood in the library’s parking lot has been looking a little sparse. Redwood trees are native to California, and the library’s tree is believed to be one of the few found in Rhode Island. Unfortunately, our redwood tree is sick and will need treatment for the rest of its life. Kaiser Tree Preservation, Internationally Certified Arborists, of North Kingstown, RI will manage the treatment for this tree.

Please contact the library at 949-3630 ext. 1 if you would like to contribute to the tree’s recovery, or you can send in a donation to the Greenville Public Library, 573 Putnam Pike, Greenville,RI 02828. Please specify for
“tree recovery.” Thank you.
