You can also enter to win some awesome items such as an older American Girl Doll, LEGO Mindstorms set and more. All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Wilmington Library. Thank you for upcycling! Masks Required.

Explore and learn about vernal pools from local environmentalists and Headwaters Stream Team members Martha Stevenson and Suzanne Sullivan, who will lead a walk to find vernal pools in the area behind the library, at 6:30pm.
