Library Scoop: Want to Learn How to Build a Water Garden?

If you love water gardens and always dreamt of owning one, you can learn how to build one yourself.  The Arboretum Library has many books with easy-to-read instructions on constructing ponds, selecting specific flowers and plants for your water garden, and the types of fishes that are appropriate for a pond. 
Members can check books out for three weeks and renew them twice!  Non-members are welcome to browse the library stacks and take notes. As a friendly reminder, admission fee to the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden is not required to use the Arboretum Library.
