Oh, springtime! It's warm enough to read on the front porch!

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.” ― Cicero

It's getting warmer! And, there's lots to experience outdoors as nature wakes up! We've got the books for you: Gardening, hiking, what-kind-of insect-is-that, great trips to take during springtime. It's also Poetry Month and we have an incredible display of write-your-own poetry activities that will inspire you!

Join us this month for our annual Dog and Pony Show--the photographs featuring the wonderful gazes of sweet dogs and equines is one of our favorites--put Saturday, April 27th on your calendar for the Closing Reception and Juror's Talk with Ray Sullivan. Coco's Cupboard will be here with adoptable pooches and we'll be serving yummy hot dogs and libations galore!

Stop by, pick up some books for your spring vacation, share your thoughts about contemporary topics at Living Room Conversations...and, join one of our book groups and discover great titles that you didn't know you would love!
