Latham Seed Saving Library @ Latham Library

The Latham Seed Saving Library was launched in the fall of 2020, so this is our first growing season! That means that we don’t yet have a large selection of seeds to share. Over the coming years, with help from you and others, we will be able to build our library’s stock and diversity. If you are successful in your gardening and seed saving and can return seeds to the library to pass on to future gardeners, you will be helping us to fulfill our goal of building a growing, thriving community seed library. For more info visit the Seed Library page on this website.

Available Seeds Spring 2021 (all grown in Thetford):
Anise Hyssop
Bean-“Kentucky Wonder” Pole
Bean-“Norma” Pole
Black-eyed Susan
Buckwheat
Calendula
Cosmos-“Tango”
Dill
Decorative Corn
Gerber Daisy
Foxtail Millet
Sunflower

You may request one packet of each type of seed by emailing Librarians@thetfordlibrary.org . We are currently using curbside service out of the box on the front porch of Latham Library for seed pickup.

Latham Library Adult Book / Film Discussion @ Online via Zoom

Latham Library Adult Book / Film Discussion @ Online via Zoom

Welcome to Latham Library’s Adult Book/Film Discussion Group.  Every month, we couple a book with a film featuring a related topic or theme.  You can choose to read the book and/or view the film.

What’s life like from the point of view of a gifted bee who belongs to the lowest class in her totalitarian hive?  This month’s book, The Bees, is a fact-filled and dazzlingly imaginative fantasy and political thriller set in the world of bees.  A story of courage, conflict, and dystopia among social insects, it considers the value of difference and the evolution of racial identity.

Our companion film is the 2012 documentary More than Honey.  From a bee’s-eye view of colonies in California, Switzerland and Austria, it illustrates the plight and significance of honeybees.

To view the film, visit the library’s website www.thetfordlibrary.org  and look for Kanopy Streaming Movies at the bottom of the left column on the homepage.

To request the book and register for the group discussion, please email librarians@thetfordlibrary.org
