News from the Library
Hello all and welcome newcomers:
Where did the spring go? Now the fans and air conditioners are helping us to keep our cool in the Library. I have a lengthy list of new books and articles since March. Click on the link below to view. There are many on sustainable vegetable gardening.
New books, articles and website lists
Thanks to the Richard E. Brandes $50,000 bequest to the Los Angeles Arboretum Foundation, the Arboretum Library is using some of that money to keep moving forward with adding items to our online catalog. Beginning in July, Jessica Holada will work on the project. Watch our catalog grow at the link below. Try a search with the keyword “vegetable”. Jessica will be working weekends to extend our hours. Come say hello.
Arboretum Library Online Catalog
We are circulating to Los Angeles Arboretum Foundation members as well as the Arboretum staff. The circulation period for books is 3 weeks with 2 renewals if no one else wants the item. You can renew by e-mail, phone or in person, but not on the online catalog. The circulation period for current magazines is 3 days with 2 renewals if no one else wants the item.
The Arboretum Library hours for July are as follows:
Open Tuesday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Open Saturdays, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Open Sundays, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The Library will be closed Friday & Saturday, July 3 & 4. Happy Independence Day!
Beer for Books and the L. A. Garden Show, May 1-3, 2009
We had a successful time at the L.A. Garden Show selling used books, magazines and beer. We have already used some of the proceeds to buy new books from the Missouri Botanical Garden Press. Keep us in mind if you are looking for a place to donate your plant and garden used book and magazines, so we can use them for the next year’s sale at the LA Garden Show. For more information about donations, please contact me at 626-821-3213 or Susan.Eubank@Arboretum.org.
Our Botanical Information Consultants (for plant advice) are currently available seven days a week. David.Lofgren@Arboretum.org or Frank.McDonough@Arboretum.org or 626-821-3239.
