Happy International Literacy Day!
Although, here at the library, every day is a Literacy Day!
This Wednesday at 6pm will be our Families Reading Together event! We will have a special reading of I Love Our Earth by Bill Martin Jr. and a composting program for kids!
In celebration of the Earth and Literacy, here are a few selections from the book, Earth Songs by Myra Cohn Livingston
Little O, small earth, spinning in space,
face covered with dizzy clouds, racing,
chasing sunlight through the Milky Way,
say your secr3ets, small earth, little O,
know where you lead, I follow. I go.
With land and sea,
I am earth,
Come with me!
Tundra covers me; swamps sodden, dank,
Banked with moss, a soft, spongy morass.
Grassy bogs blanket my soaked crust here.
sere, barren plains slush through marshed found
mounded with sedge on wet, withered ground.
