Library Director's Message

Coming up this month we have two programs that are part of the Longwood Gardens Community Read 2022. This year, we’re encouraging our Community Readers to explore the concept of trees as nature’s great connectors, and how trees may help us gain insight into ourselves and our place in the world  Trees represent growth, peace, and nature while teaching us how to plant deep roots and reach for the sky. Our three selections include our featured book The Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature’s Great Connectors by David Haskell, the poetic picture book We Planted a Tree by Diane Muldrow, and the engaging graphic novel by the team at the Morton Arboretum Canopy Career Chronicles.  Lansdale Library's two Community Read events in March are listed under the Lifelong Learning section of this email.

Early Literacy

Our St. Patrick's Day Take and Make craft bags are now available this week in the Children's Area of the library! Suitable for children from preschool through elementary school, each bag contains the supplies needed to make popsicle stick leprechauns and gnomes, with adult assistance! Get yours while supplies last!
