All Aboard!

little-engine  “What sort of thing are we going to do, today?”, asked the children who were very weary of bundling up their mittens and things, once again, to venture out into the long winter’s freeze and mountainous snow stacks. The children weren’t aware they’d become awfully cranky, out of sorts, out of ideas, out of things to do, but their parents noticed. “Weariness is normal this time of year, dears. Please be patient. Springtime is near”, said the parents who were weary, as well, mostly from shoveling the heavy heaps of snow, trying to walk or drive safely on their daily journeys or just tidying up after everyone, every wintry day.

Next month, March 20, is the first day of spring, or at least we Mainers wish to believe it is so! Until that dreamy thought comes true, the Library is here for you, especially if you’re wondering where to go and what to do during school vacation. If you love trains or knows someone who does, the Maine 3 Railers Model Train Club will be here Feb 17, 18, 19, 10:00am-4:00pm, and Feb 20,10:00am-3:00pm for a special show and tell. Electric train displays will take over the Storytime Room and “engineers” will be on hand to talk about their exciting collections. All of you are very welcome to visit and stay for the day to snuggle up and read some great books, particularly train books. My all time favorite train book is The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper. But wait, there’s more…on Tuesday, Feb 17, 10:30am-11:15am, Buster B will be on hand with his groovy guitar to present a fantastic children’s concert, a train themed dance and sing-along for everyone! Remember, the PFL is always here for you and your family. Check out our Monthly Flyer of future events.
