At the Pine Plains Free Library, librarian Marguerite Hill holds weekly story hours in the children’s room. Keeping in line with the spring weather, Hill recently read to the children from a number of stories about planting in the garden. She then sent the children home with a better understanding of the flowers that bloom in their parents’ gardens.
