A Message from Our Director

For twenty-four years, the Friends of the Library have sponsored the annual garden tour. In past years, visitors would enjoy a self- guided tour of five or six featured gardens in Beaver and surrounding areas. They could go at their own pace and the gardeners would point out highlights of each of the gardens. Often the visitors would walk to the libraries located in downtown Beaver. Every year there was a special theme such as “This Garden Rocks”, “Garden Art” or “Fairy Gardens.” Attendees were treated to cookies and punch at the library. The event would not be possible without the help from the Friends of the Library, the staff, and the generous visitors who contributed to the event.

Our annual garden tour is one of four fundraisers the Friends of the Library sponsors throughout the year.  any money that we make will be used towards capital projects including landscaping, bathroom upgrades, and painting.
