HANOVER — The summer reading program at the Gardner Roberts Memorial Library has a whole different twist.
Along with reading and doing crafts, the 20 or so youngsters who are taking part have planted and are caring for a community garden.
Each Wednesday an average of six or seven children visit the garden on land owned by Scott and Carol Gould at Howard Pond and Mill Hill roads. It’s just a short walk from the historic library.
“It’s the perfect activity for kids,” said Michele Richardson of Milton Township. “They garden, have a snack, do a craft, then take out a book.”
