What do you mean you don't know what a Fairy Garden is?!?  A Fairy Garden is a small tended space with miniature sized...well...everything!  It's a place for fairies to visit when no one is looking...as fairies do!  Here is how you can take part:

1. Pick up a Take & Make kit from Seminole library any day this week. 

2. Make your fairy accessory at home and then bring it back and add it to our Community Fairy Garden! 

3. Enjoy watching our Fairy Garden grow as we work together to make something we can all enjoy, most of all the fairies!
