Grow with the Library

The Library offers many resources to help you go from a brown to a green thumb. From books and audiobooks available in the branch to online books, courses, and databases filled with updated information on growing into the gardener you have always wanted to be.

Throughout the year, Master Gardeners will provide Q and A sessions at the Pearl River branch and they also host a Garden Fest in the Spring at the Covington Branch.

Garden Fest is held in the Spring annually at the Covington Library. Master Gardeners, the LSU Ag center and several plant vendors are all present at this event to help aspiring gardeners learn more about what's growing in their yard.
