It was time to go
Though the field’s lay golden
Something whispered SNOW” by Rachel Field
I know I use this poem every year, but it’s one of my favorites…
If the wild geese heard Books instead of Snow they would be flocking to the library. Miss Kim and other staff members have done some very special decorating, to make the library look even more special.
Last week I did Westerns and Christmas …this week Mysteries and Christmas.
“Pam’s Picks” and just a little different, a Children’s book…“Dewey’s Christmas at the Library.” For those of you not familiar with Dewey… this book is based on a true story. An abandoned kitten was found stuffed in the returned book slot on a very cold night. This small town Library Cat has become famous in Libraries all over the world. It makes a very touching Christmas story.
