 Who are we?

We are volunteers who maintain the herb garden and other landscape projects at the Marion Public Library.  We host monthly meetings, often with a craft, for our members and sometimes for the public.   The classes often have a small fee to cover the cost of the supplies.   There is $10 annual dues, paid in May and we encourage all Bookworms to become a members of the BookMarks friends group at some level.  Even if you can’t help in the garden, we would love to have you join us and be a part of the fun!
