Seed libraries are popping up all around Long Island. Libraries are realizing seed libraries are a great way to engage gardeners in our community. We are also traditionally very good at saving, collecting and sharing items! What’s the best way to operate a seed library? Let’s get together to discuss best practices and share our ideas!

Light from Other Stars by Erika Swyler

The author will speak at 2:00 pm on Sunday, April 19, 2020 at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library.

FREE TICKETS will be available beginning March 2.

RASD Media Committee @ Sayville

Location Change

Hello all,
For anyone that was looking to attend our next RASD Media meeting next week on the 29th, the venue has changed to Sayville Library.  We will be hosting in our community meeting room A/B.  The library opens at 10am but we will let all attendees in starting at 9:30am.  The library is located at 88 Greene Ave in Sayville and parking spots can sometimes be difficult to find close to 10am.
Thank you and hope to see you there.
