Down Time with Cranston Public Library

Apr 12 2022 • 40 mins


This week Tayla is joined by Amy Rosa from Washington Park Library in Providence and Nathaniel Gill, master gardener in training to talk about the Community Libraries of Providence’s seed library. They discuss the idea behind creating a seed library as well as some basic tips for spring planting. They also talk about Encanto, Star Trek, and movies that make them worried about the future of the human race. During The Last Chapter they discuss which literary universe they would want to live in.
