The Aldine Library's Read Across America Day on 3/8/12 featured two door prize drawings. One family of triplets had two lucky winners. The siblings took home a Dr. Seuss backpack and blanket after the celebration.
 

Spring

Spring is here. What better way to express the change in seasons than in a poem? 

The poet Dylan Thomas evokes images of the seasons in his Collected Poems:

"Symbols are selected from the years'

Slow rounding of the four seasons' coasts,

In autumn teach three seasons' fires

And four birds' notes."

In addressing spring, Dylan writes "Here in this spring, stars float along the void; I should learn spring by the cuckooing. . ."

Happy Spring to you!
