PHOTOS: Exciting Updates Are Coming To Mississauga Libraries

 

Some exciting things are happening at many Mississauga libraries!

On June 8, the Port Credit Library is celebrating the official unveiling of their pollinator garden.

Located at 20 Lakeshore Road East, the garden hosts a variety of local native flowers, ornamental grasses and shrubs to attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators by providing a source of food and shelter.

The garden is a joint project between the City of Mississauga, Cloverleaf Garden Club of Mississauga, Credit Valley Conservation, Scotts Canada Ltd and the Port Credit Seed Library.

People can visit the library on June 8 from 2 p.m to 4 p.m to take part in the activities and the unveiling. The event is free and the first 50 kids will be able to take home a free pollinator plant.

The garden is in addition to many other pollinator projects around the city including the One Million Trees program, 13 pollinator and community gardens as well as the honeybee hive on the roof of City Hall.

This is the third unveiling this year at Mississauga libraries.
