And the Winner of the Oscar is…
If you missed seeing some of the Oscar nominees and winners on the “big screen,” take heart. Our goal is to purchase them as they become available on DVD so that you may enjoy them this spring and summer. Season 3 of Downton Abbey is already here. Stop in and see what else we have!

Library Quotes
The Library Quote for this month is from Walter Cronkite: “Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.

Is Spring just around the Corner?
Well, it’s not quite here yet. As I write this on March 8th, it’s snowing. But spring and summer will soon be here. Are your lawn and garden ready? Thanks to a generous Strathmere resident, our library is building a collection of books on organic landscaping. This is a subject that has real relevance here on the islands. During the summer we hope to have a program on organic lawn care. Stay tuned.

Christine Rohrman, Library Director
