An Evening with David Sleasman: Longwood Gardens' Main Fountain Garden Project

Event Type: Adults
Date: 3/9/2017
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Description:
 The Chester County Library joins Longwood Gardens again for the fourth year of Community Read–a program designed to encourage reading for pleasure and start a conversation. The largest project in Longwood Gardens' history is underway as they restore and renovate the beloved Main Fountain Garden. As Longwood Gardens anticipates the reopening of the Main Fountain Garden, we are reminded of Pierre du Pont’s application of innovative design and technology when creating this engineering marvel. Therefore, it is fitting for this year’s community read to explore—and explain—the science, technology, and engineering concepts inherent in our world today.
David Sleasman, Library & Information Services Coordinator at Longwood Gardens will introduce us to Pierre du Pont’s vision of the gardens and take us on an exploration of the new main fountain renovations, due to be unveiled this spring. A drawing will be held for free guest passes to Longwood Gardens. This program supports the PA Forward Civic and Social Literacy Initiative.
