Winters-Bellbrook Community Library is lucky to have a beautiful flower garden in front of the building, maintained by the Bellbrook Garden Club.
The Dunham Garden at Winters Library was dedicated in 1999 as a memorial to Jeanette Dunham, who served for years as both a Bellbrook Garden Club member and a Greene County Public Library Board of Trustees member. The garden was made possible by a gift from her family, and originally had plants from her garden. The patio and several plantings were provided by the City to add to the enjoyment of library visitors.
To help maintain continuity of design, the club also cares for the front bed on the east side of the entrance. Other community projects of the club include maintenance of the gardens at the Bellbrook Historical Museum, the courtyard space at Stephen Bell Elementary School, Sugarcreek School projects and scholarships, a Sugar Maple Festival booth, and an annual plant sale.
The Bellbrook Garden Club was organized October 25, 1941, and celebrated their 75th anniversary in 2016 by planting a tree at the Morris Reserve parking area. There are currently 40 members. Find more information on their website: bellbrookgardenclub.org.
The library says “Thank you!” to the Bellbrook Garden Club for all their hard work and beautiful results.
