Search the Howard County Library's website for books on gardening, and you'll come up with hundreds of titles. But soon the shelves won't be the only place at the library to learn about gardening and healthful lifestyles. The Friends of Howard County Library, a nonprofit organization that supports the library system, has received a $25,000 grant to develop a community-based teaching garden at the soon-to-open Charles E. Miller Branch and Historical Center in Ellicott City. The new branch is slated to open in December 2011 adjacent to the current structure that bears the same name.

As if the East Columbia Library didn't hold enough literary delights, visual treats abounded as well at "Evening in the Stacks," the fifth annual fund-raiser for the Howard County Library. The winter wonderland theme first greeted guests as they entered the foyer through an "arbor" of white branches twinkling with little white lights, set into "drifts" of fluffy cotton "snow." The children's area was swagged in white, where guests could help themselves to punch, dipping into a large bowl carved out of ice. Wandering through the aforementioned stacks had a culinary payoff, as various local chefs manned food stations there.

Howard County has a reputation of being one of the most affluent jurisdictions in the nation, but volunteers in a Columbia-based program say many families of public school students are struggling to make ends meet - particularly as their sons and daughters prepare to go back to school. Prepare for Success, a program that operates as a partnership of the county schools and the Community Action Council of Howard County, is working to alleviate some of the burden by providing school supplies to children in need.
