Green Spring Gardens Library

The Green Spring Gardens library houses more than 3,000 informative and up-to-date volumes related to horticulture that cover everything from annuals to xeriscaping. Located in the Horticulture Center, the non-circulating library is open for reference Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 4:30 p.m.
The Children's Corner has fun, colorful, garden-themed storybooks and educational materials for teachers and parents that teach about gardening and nature.
The library subscribes to approximately 30 magazines and receives newsletters from local and national plant societies and garden clubs. A file of nursery catalogs for seeds, plants and gardening supplies is available as well as a community kiosk with information about local horticultural events.
 

Green Spring’s library is generously supported by the Friends of Green Spring (FROGS.) The library periodically accepts donations of gently used gardening books. Donated materials not selected for the library collection may be sold through the FROGS used book sale that supports library services. The library maintains a wish list on Amazon.com of books it plans to add to its collection.
