Books in Bloom - 2011




Books in Bloom was designed to tickle the creativity of floral/plant arrangers to illustrate selected media from the library.

In this inaugural year, twenty-two blooms were sponsored and designed and enjoyed by over 400 guests over the weekend.

If you missed it, or would like to enjoy it again, click on Flickr for photos of the event.

Thank you to our Presenting Sponsors:
