Pre Spring Break Ponderings

On the rarest of Leap Days, it was 60 degrees, I heard the song of the beautiful red winged black bird and could feel it all through my bones. Spring is coming! There is much activity in the library as we wind down the last week before spring break and you can see the stress in the procrastinator's eye. Everyone seems to have the seasonal fervor! For the next two weeks, some of you will jet set while others just veg. It is not a stretch to say that spring break is the beginning of the end (or the end of the beginning for some, you almost sophmores!). We have some great books to check out specifically aligned with spring break reading. These stories tell of baseball and young love, hiking and a mystery by the shore. What more could you ask for? Come on in to see our curated collection of Spring Break books - there is something for everyone.

Another query for spring break includes Mrs. Masterson's main intellectual heart throb, Joseph Campbell. Have you come to see her ode to this magnificent man?

“From the Star Wars trilogy to the Grateful Dead,” says the Joseph Campbell Foundation, “Joseph Campbell has had a profound impact on our culture, our beliefs, and the way we view ourselves and the world.” Need I say more?I promise you will not be let down by 48 Hours of Joseph Campbell

How can we blog about Spring Break without talking fashion. Well, bonjour, students! Today was the first day of Fashion Week in Paris! And wow, there are quite a few trends this Mainer will not be following, but can truly appreciate nevertheless.

Check the looks out here Fashion Week: Paris

Last but certainly not least, today is Read Across America Day, in honor of the late, great Theodore Seuss Geisel, who would be 112 years old today! He worked as a cartoonist and in advertising before making his pseudonym known the world over as author of children's books. So, in his honor today, read some rhymes and have some green eggs and ham. With Sam. By the dam. Don't forget the jam. Have fun with the fam!

We look forward to hearing of your Spring Break adventures!
