River Views: An Appreciation of Our State’s Namesake Waterway

Clean-up at Haddam Meadows

Saturday, Sept. 29th  9am-12pm

Our CT River talks included history, geology, edible plants, & predatory birds.  Help us as we step outside the Library to clean a section of River. BML and Adopt-A-Park will work together at Haddam Meadows to clean up trash and invasive plants. The Rockfall Foundation is partnering with us in this CT River Conservancy’s Source to Sea annual cleanup.  We’ll meet to the left of the boat launch. Everyone encouraged to participate! Youths need to be with an adult. Please dress for the weather, bring garden loppers or a saw, water and gloves. Volunteers with Haddam Transfer stickers needed to help transport items to the station. Sign up on the calendar, call, or look for our team on the CT River Conservancy website under the Get Involved tab.










Christmas Beaded Ornament Cover

Saturday, October 13th

10:30 to 12:30

Christmas is coming to Brainerd Library early. Beaded ornament covers make unique gifts, decorations or keepsakes. Choose your favorite colors and glass ball to create a handmade ornament. We’ll use seed beads & glass pearls to make an ornament cover from jewelry designer Michelle Skobel. Cover is easy enough for a beginner & satisfying enough for an experienced beader. Stop in to see an example.  Please sign up on calendar or call 860-345-2204. Space limited to 12.
