Visit the Coburn Free Library and watch us grow! We are excited to announce that the pollinator garden planted in June is thriving and beautiful. Come relax in the garden, sit on the benches to enjoy the view, read under the serviceberry tree, and experience the native plants of New York. We also now have a stage behind the building so you can enjoy the lovely garden AND a show.
Coming soon: Markers telling about each plant and which pollinators they attract. Also coming soon: A seed exchange library.
We owe a huge THANK YOU to Owego Rotary, the Friends of the Coburn Free Library, Seamus Cerretani, Jon Boland, and W. H. Lane for making our new pollinator garden, outdoor reading area, and stage happen. We appreciate the donations of supplies, plants, and loads of labor.

Here are a few images of the projects as they unfolded.
