April is always so promising. Warmth is bound to the color green and welcomes us all into a long awaited rebirth of life’s cycles. We plan gardens, bring out the lawn furniture and dust off our grills. Make a nice place to sit outside and read a book a priority! We do also hope you include time to spend at our Library. There are many great programs happening this month that we hope you will enjoy. Let’s check them all out below!
