  • The compost bins are used for all of the library garden and yard trimmings and are a teaching site for lake friendly gardening practices. The library staff, visitors and local restaurants also add to the compost. Interpretive signs are above each bin explaining the composting process.
                 Backyard composting is a way to reconnect to our environment. When residents and visitors see how economical, how environmentally friendly and how easy the compost process is, we hope that they will be inspired to start their own backyard composting. Finished compost is used in all the library gardens. No other fertilizers are used in the gardens or lawn. Herbicides and pesticides are never used in these gardens.
