• Lincoln Library

  • SCLH Garden Group under the direction of Arden Bendorf and Carol Wilson, volunteers two people on a monthly basis to water and maintain the indoor plants at the Lincoln Library.  

    The ladies usually go on a Tuesday morning before the library opens to the public to check on each plant looking for dead leaves, branches, bugs, dust the leaves, spray and wipe when necessary with insecticide and check the moisture level of each plant to determine if it needs additional watering.  ​

    Depending upon the location of the plant, some plants will need more care than others but under the expert guidance of Arden and Carol, the ladies know what to do each visit.  If a plant needs repotting, Arden arranges for a time to repot and return the plant to its proper location within the library.

    Also, thru the SCLH Garden Group, the library receives on a regular basis a copy of the following magazines for use by the public: Birds and Blooms, Garden Gate and Country Gardens.
