Weyenberg Library has to offer on this wonderful season.  Bruce Stutz’s Chasing Spring: An American Journey Through a Changing Season, is a very interesting read.  The book describes his three-month car journey to discover spring, including stunning recaps of his observations of bird migrations, the melting of snow on the Rocky Mountains, and nature in its purest form from the lovely blooming of wildflowers to the intensity and terror of a tornado outbreak.  This book truly takes the reader on a fascinating, informational, and uplifting journey through this unique season.

Are you a teen or a parent of a teen looking for ways to have fun and get creative?  Consider writing a poem or two about the sights and sounds of the season or any other topic you would like and enter in our Teen Poetry Contest.  What better way to get involved and have fun basking in this great time of year?!  Please go to our website to find rules and further information on our Teen Poetry Contest.

There is so much joy to be found in the season of spring.  Remember to appreciate it while it is here, either by going out for a nice walk and getting some fresh air with a loved one or by taking the time to stop and enjoy the flowers.  Spring is definitely in the air!
