Week 10: March in Like a Lion

Displayed at the Vicksburg District Library, all of the following books are recommended. However, you’ll probably want to keep a tissue or two handy as they are tear inducing.

The other day I stepped outside to go grab a bite of lunch. Instead of hiding behind gray clouds, the sun was shining brightly. The air wasn’t bitter. The breeze was gentle and light. And you know what I smelled? Spring! Believe it or not, it is getting close. While this week looks to be another blast of winter, the warmer weather is on the horizon. I don’t know about you, but I can feel it coming!

Oh! And don’t forget to spring your clocks ahead next weekend as well!

Last Week

Writer’s Roundtable was held on Wednesday, allowing to group to catch up after a cancelled previous session due to the snow. The next session will be held on Wednesday, March 27th at 1:00pm. March’s prompt: write a poem or a brief story from the perspective of someone living in a dollhouse.

This Week

The only youth program being held this week will be Mugs & Hugs on Wednesday as Youth Librarian Stephanie is out of town on vacation. Hopefully she’ll bring back some wonderful sunshine for all of us!

Adult Book Club will be meeting this Thursday, the 7th at 9:00am. During this session, we will be munching on mixed berry muffins and discussing the books we love that bring us comfort. Our next session will be held on Thursday, April 4th at 9:00am, during which we will discuss the novel The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King. See someone at the Circulation Desk to order your copy through MeL and Interlibrary Loan.
