CHERRY TWP — North Trails Public Library invites people to boost literacy in technology and the sciences by planting white lilies, fresh tomatoes, chili peppers, strawberries and sunflowers in their gardens this spring.

North Trails Public Library has kicked off its first Spring into STEAM Flower Power fundraising campaign, library director Kathy Kline said. The campaign, which will sell seed collections for flowers, fruits and vegetables, aims to raise $2,000 for the library and on-site education programs there.

This money will fund library programs in science, technology, education, art and mathematics for adults and children, Kline said.

“We want to have something for everyone,” she said.

“Once a month we have a Science Monday program with our little children,” Kline said. “Our new service coordinator does that with them. … It’s all science-based, and you always need supplies and different things for that.”
