    Ashland Library

    Digitizing is the evolutionary method of preserving books, photographs or documents. Some documents are digitized because of their intrinsic value, while others are digitized for their extrinsic value. In the area of genealogy, it is not unusual for an individual, church, library, or other organization to store documents that may have little market value, but possess great value for family history research. See how FamilySearch.org, the world's largest collector and disseminator of genealogical records is making headway in the field of digitalization and the process for preserving historical records.

    October 8, 2022, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    @

    Ashland Library

    Virginia native plants evolved in our area, so they are well adapted to our local soils and climate. They are generally unaffected by late frosts, summer droughts, and other seasonal challenges with which other garden plants struggle. This class will focus on specific plants that are both native to Virginia and have good availability at our local nurseries. Some of the plants discussed will be appropriate for container gardening (pots on a porch or patio). By planting natives, you can support wildlife such as birds, bees, and butterflies, while making your life easier! For more information or if you have a special physical or communication need, please contact ask@pamunkeylibrary.org or call the Ashland Branch Library at 804-798-4072.
