Or just go to your local park

You don’t know what kind of trees are around – Well, at the library we have books on tree identification –
Come on in and enjoy!

A day to pay attention to our environment and what better way then to walk or ride your bike around the beautiful Library Park.

A quote: “Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life. Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe, the less taste we shall have for destruction.”

I just realized that April is National Poetry Month:

I just found an interesting poem – I would like to share with you

Open A Book
By Jane Baskwilllivros-na-decoracao-92-730x730.jpg

Open a book
And you will find
People and places of every kind;
Open a book
And you can be
Anything that you want to be;
Open a book
And you can share
Wondrous worlds you find in there;
Open a book
And I will too
You read to me
And I’ll read to you.
