Lost and Found

We have an abundance of items that have accumulated in our Lost and Found area. We have now placed the items on tables in Center Court. If your student is missing any jackets, water bottles, zipper bags, etc. please tell them to look at the tables in Center Court for their missing items when they arrive on campus before reporting to their classroom. We will have the items out for display for the next couple of weeks.

Thank you!

Saturday, March 4th- Native Plant Butterfly Garden Project

Hello Everyone,

The big day is finally here!! We will be planting the Native Plant Butterfly Garden at the Melbourne Beach Library on Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 8:30am. We will need plenty of volunteers so bring your shovels, rakes, gloves, sunscreen and drinking water. This will also be a great way to earn volunteer hours if needed. We will be meeting at the east portion of the library’s parking lot.

In preparation to the main planting, we will be having a “Prep Day” on Tuesday, February 28, at 9-11am. This will involve pulling weeds and rock removal. This will be labor intensive but the more we get done before the planting, the better it will be for the garden. Again, bring your garden tools.

Hope to see you there!

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Curtis Byrd

Co-coordinator of MB Library Native Plant Butterfly Garden Project
