Spring has sprung

Spring has sprung and there's just no denying it. The official First Day of Spring is next week on March 20; but the grass, redbuds, bluebonnets, robins and new crop of baby calves are all proof that spring is here. And, did everyone remember to “Spring Forward” with your clocks and watches as we welcomed Daylight Saving Time?

At the Van Zandt County Library, spring has arrived, also. This Friday, there will be no Story-Time because of spring break. St. Patrick's Day is also being observed with a collection of Irish and St. Paddy's books. Don't forget to wear your green March 17 to keep yourself safe from being pinched!

The Friends of the Library enjoyed meeting together Monday, March 13, and are busy planning for spring and summer activities. Activities are planned for National Library Week, April 11-14. The spring Book Fair will be May 5 – 6. The Summer Reading Programs will take place June 9 through July 21, with Friday mornings full of fun and excitement. Anyone who would like to be a part of a group of people dedicated to supporting our library and its programs is welcome to join by coming to a meeting on the second Monday of the month or ask at the circulation desk for a membership form.
