There are exciting programs for children at the Loutit District Library (LDL) in Grand Haven this summer.

This Tuesday, July 16, plants will be a big part of the summer reading program. Plants are blooming is the program led by Youth Librarian Assistant Susan Trittin who will demonstrate how to make a terrarium that grows tiny plants using a two-litter bottle.

Our news partner, WZZM TV13 reports that children ages seven and up will learn how to make their own bottle terrarium during Trittin’s program, “Groovy Gardens." Trittin will also highlight how their terrarium recycles its own water, while showing the kids how to recognize when to add water.

The program begins at 2 p.m. in LDL’s Program Room A. Materials for this program will be supplied. To register, visit or call 616-842-5560, ext. 216.
