Have any plants that you would like to share or need new plants for your garden? Here’s an opportunity to make your garden more interesting, share the plants that just grew too fast and perhaps get rid of something that you didn’t like too much! The Boone Area Library will be hosting a plant swap on Saturday, June 1st from 9am to 12pm. Bring in one plant to swap for one item. Please have each plant labeled with name and place it in a bag or container.
