WEEKLY QUOTE  "I wonder if the sap is stirring yet, if wintry birds are dreaming of a mate, if frozen snowdrops feel as yet the sun and crocus fires are kindling one by one; sing robin, sing; I still am sore in doubt concerning Spring." – Christina Rossetti, poet

 

MOVIE NIGHT  Join us for a PG-rated and animated flick featuring a large dinosaur and his small pet this Thursday, the 24th, at 5:30 PM.  We’ll provide the popcorn!

WEEKLY QUOTE “Indoors or out, no one relaxes in March, that month of wind and taxes, the wind will presently disappear, the taxes last us all the year.” – Ogden Nash, American poet  (Tax day used to be March 15th – now we have one month more to file.)

 

LEPRECHAUNS  Help us solve a mysterious (and kelly-green-tinged) break-in at the library this Thursday, March 17th, at 5 PM.  Rumor has it there may be many pots of gold at the end of the mystery – or at least some candy.

THE LIFT IS HERE  Our new handicapped-accessible outdoor lift has been installed and should be available for use as of today.  The new design is enclosed from lift to entrance, easy to use, and easy to access via the recently repaved sidewalk.  This replaces our old ramp, which had deteriorated to the point where it was not safe to use.  We apologize for the many and varied circumstances that caused the delays in constructing the lift, and thank you for your patience.  Please stop by and take a look or a ride (weather permitting, of course.)

 

ST PATRICK’S DAY  Help us solve a mysterious break-in at the library on March 17th at 5 PM.  Follow the trail of clues and pick up some (candy) gold at the end of the rainbow.

 

EGG HUNT  The ninjas will return to the library on Saturday, March 26th at 11 AM.  Pass their trials to earn your official ninja school certificate, and then hunt for treat-filled eggs around the building.
