Come hear Mark Leidner recite his poetry and check out other events.
Good morning and welcome to Thursday! We’re now two full days into spring, and I’m a happy girl! This mild weather makes me think this is what March should always be like – and what it’s like every year further south.

I’m always surprised that, with all the raking I did last fall, it still needs to be done all over again come spring. So this weekend, once you’ve done your raking and you’re looking for a little respite, head over to the library for this month’s poetry reading. Mark Leidner’s poems are contemporary and accessible; he likes to inject a little humor into his poetry, so…

Buying jewelry for a cause, as well as an author talk and other library news.
It’s prom season and wedding season, and you’re looking for that fabulous piece of jewelry that’s unique and will finish your outfit.

And double bonus: 100% of the proceeds from the sale go to scholarships for four lucky CCHS graduates!
