KENNEBUNKPORT — Kids’ Winter Garden Programs at the Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library (for children ages 8 to 12) will be held on four consecutive Thursdays beginning this Thursday and running through March 10 from 3-4 p.m.

Classes are free and will be taught by Shelley Wigglesworth, a certified Maine Master Gardener and award-winning local journalist. Pre-registration is required and the classes are limited to 12 students.
