Asharoken Garden Club

This special collection, gathered by members of the Asharoken Garden Club, was gifted to the Library in 1999 for all Northport-East Northport community gardeners who wish to reap the garden lore and wisdom which has helped their gardens flourish. The garden club donates money annually to allow us to purchase additional books on gardening topics.
