The Book Edge

By April Hernandez

Lincoln Library Fact: Want to expand your reading horizons? Do you enjoy discussing books with others? The Library has a book club that meets monthly January through October. Join us the fourth Thursday of the month at 7 pm. March’s Book Club title is The Lilac Girls and April’s is Louisiana’s Way Home.

StoryTime: With it being the last Tuesday before St. Patrick’s Day, we went for the green today. We included the color and read the book, Green. We also brought in the quickly approaching and welcomed season of Spring, and read the book, Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms. We read the fun books of That’s What Leprechauns Do and How to Catch a Leprechaun before making our own four-leaf clovers to hang on the wall. We finished up story time by reading about Saint Patrick. Most everyone was happy with their green chocolate mint cupcakes, but a few weren’t impressed with the green and had to have a substitute. – Doris Sorg
