The Gardens at the Millis Public Library 

In the 2013-14 timeframe, local volunteer Jean Maier designed and spearheaded the installation of the lovely gardens at the newly constructed Millis Public Library.  Jeannie, an artist and self-taught gardener, undertook this formidable project on her own initiative, in coordination with then Library Trustee liaison Maria Neville.  The Millis Garden Club and Millis Lions Club donated the funding and manpower, and certified arborist and landscaper Scott McPhee volunteered his time and talent to work in collaboration with Jeannie in selecting and purchasing the plants and preparing the soil.  In the words of former Library Director Tricia Perry, the result reflects Jeannie’s “... incredible spirit of grace, generosity and artistic genius.”

The three container gardens at the front and rear entrances are designed and maintained by the Millis Garden Club.

 

Please take the time to enjoy the gardens when visiting the library and take pleasure in them during each of the changing seasons.
