Cross Mills’ Library Produces Annual Garden Tours Online

Cross Mills Library and Charlestown Historical Society Garden 2020
Does anyone know the name of this pink blossom plant located in the flower bed in front of the Charlestown Historical Society? Thanks to the many volunteers who keep this magnificent garden!

Cross Mills’ Library Annual Garden Tours 2020 Are Available Online


As many of you may have missed, the library could not hold its annual used book sale this year. (In what other place on Earth do you know where one can fill up a bag of books and pay what one feels it is worth?)

This spring, Library Director Sarah Ornstein and her Board of Directors produced video garden tours conducted by library patrons. The online videos show resplendent local gardens tended by Charlestowners – many of them for several decades.

Click below and enjoy several garden tours from the safety and comfort of your homes.  Afterwards, please return to the library’s page and donate a contribution to support the library.



A BoP customer and experienced gardener came into the store this summer looking for a book to help him grow tastier vegetables.

He needed to be reminded of the basics.  Here is the book he landed on. (It is out of stock but we can find it for you.)
