Annual Meetings

An annual meeting hosted by a member institution is held each spring. Here members have a chance to meet one another to discuss matters of mutual interest and concern, and have a unique opportunity to get an insider's view of the host institution.

The yearly meetings have included lectures on the care and preservation of collections, computer systems and services, as well as talks on garden literature and botanical art. Individual programs and a business meeting are regularly complemented by site visits to neighboring gardens and historic locales.

Members of the Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries are invited
to attend CBHL's 45th Annual Meeting in 2014.

The Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is a place where plants -- and people -- grow.

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden enlightens and inspires its constituents through its outstanding botanical collections, horticultural displays and landscape design. The Garden engages its constituents with the natural world through interpretation, programs, educational resources and outreach. And it advocates for sustainability and stewardship of our planet.

Located in the Garden's Education and Library Complex, the Lora M. Robins Library is home to a collection of horticultural and botanical resources, including 2,500 original 19th century watercolor drawings of plants by Alexandre Descubes plus other botanical-themed art.
