Jemison Public Library is gearing up for summer activities.

Assistant librarian Cheryl English said Story time started back in mid-April and will continue to be held each Wednesday 10-11 a.m. at Jemison City Hall.

Snack are provided.

The library’s garden and patio area are nearing completion. English said the area will be a good place for photo or to sit and read. Plans are also in the works to use the garden in summer programing. English said this could include teaching children to make salsa with garden herbs and learning about birds.

The garden has been made possible by a number of donations and volunteers. English said students from Chilton Christian Academy helped with planting flowers. Will McMinn, Jack Hayes, Jonathan Lowery, Lexi Carr and Kenny Sammons also volunteered on the project.

More programs for children and adults are in the works.

English said the plan is to have some of the programs that were canceled because of COVID-19 restrictions and to bring back the recurring classes that had been offered.
