Bulb-Forcing Workshop

Bulb-Forcing Workshop
Saturday, September 28th
4:00PM


Every spring our gardens burst with daffodils, tulips, crocuses and irises.

This happens because we plant them in the fall. But there is a way to have them bloom in our homes in the middle of winter. It may sound cruel, but we have to “force” them.
In this workshop, taught by Jack Gantzer, you will learn basic techniques for forcing bulbs and how long it takes for different types of bulbs to bloom. You will leave with a pot of bulbs ready for winter flowering. 

Pre-registration is requested so we can buy supplies for the workshop. Email news@claveracklibrary.org, or call 518 851 7120 or visit the library.

A donation of $5 to cover the cost of bulbs and pots is suggested.

Buy a Brick, Build a Library

Your Library Is Going Places!
Buy a Brick, Build a Library

After years of careful planning, community input and phased construction, the new, enhanced Claverack Free Library and community center is projected to open on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 12:00PM.
For each contribution of $100, a brick will be inscribed as you direct, with proceeds to go to the children’s room at the new library. Bricks will be placed along the sidewalk of the main entrance to assure that your family, friends and loved ones have a lasting presence at the new Claverack Free Library and community center.

 *The last day to buy a brick for installation before the opening of our building is Tuesday, September 3*
