Fredricksen Library has teamed up with Penn State Master Gardeners to bring you a series of workshops that will show you how to garden with nature.  Penn State Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by Penn State Extension to provide research-based home gardening information to the public.

Knowing what summer flowers do well in our area will make it easier to create the look you want this season. Various plants are trialed at the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden, at the Claremont Nursing Home in Carlisle. Learn about the annuals that did well, and those that didn't as we view pictures of the plants trailed, along with ratings they were given on blooms, etc.

Cost per workshop is $5.00. More topics offered on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Registration for all programs is now open. To Register Contact: Penn State Extension, Cumberland County 1-877-345-0691.

FROM THE USA:  Winner of multiple awards, this film follows the true story of Oscar Grant, who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and decides to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son, being a better partner to his girlfriend, and being a better father to their beautiful daughter. Oscar starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easily. His resolve takes a tragic turn, when BART officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year's Day. Oscar's life and tragic death would shake the Bay Area - and the entire nation - to its very core. Rated R. No registration needed. Sponsored by Jane and Bill Murray
