635 AND 712 !
When I go to the library, I always check section 635 of the non-fiction area, for gardening books I may not have seen before. On a recent visit, I learned there are also gardening books in section 712 of non-fiction. These in 712 are more like overall gardening, instead of just specialty – such as roses, perennials, etc. So this is a whole new source of eye candy and facts for my ongoing research for shade gardening. Mother, may I look at the books you will be donating, before you donate them? Also, did you know that donated books that don’t go onto the shelves to be checked out, and don’t sell at the perpetual book sale area, are sent to needy schools in poor counties across the nation? So someone, somewhere will learn something interesting. Assisted Living Centers are also an excellent place to donate. Even if a person is physically unable to garden anymore, they can enjoy good pictures, and gardening books can be great conversation starters for them.
So remember section 712 next time you are at the library.
