Waukegan Public Library Day at the Chicago Botanic Garden!

Post date: Thursday, June 18, 2015 - 2:14pm

The Waukegan Public Library is proud to partner with the Chicago Botanic Garden for an afternoon of special events at the Garden.

Patrons registered by the June 16 deadline will participate in a guided tour of the Lenhardt Library and attend a gallery talk on the exhibition Keep Growing: Chicago Horticultural Society’s 125th Anniversary. Then, patrons will be invited to a special viewing of rare books from the Chicago Botanic Garden’s collection. The program also grants free entrance to the gardens, which patrons will be encouraged to enjoy after the tours.

The Library frequently partners with other local organizations to offer programming that takes patrons beyond the library building. Stay tuned for future opportunities!
