Flowers and foliage plants at the Library.

Tompkins County Public Library

Plantings at the Tompkins County Public Library on the corner of Cayuga St. and Green St. are in an attached brick planter that runs along the Cayuga St. side and around the corner across from the parking garage. This planting is filled with annuals, bulbs and perennials. There is also a garden in back of the library with perennials, many of which can be cut for bouquets for the library. A sculpture alcove at the north end of the planter is planted with perennial daylilies and other colorful annuals. 

Beautification Brigade volunteer Heather Williams has adopted the Library plantings since 2020.
