April 17th

Outside the windows

Springtime brings thoughts of the landscaping committee to mind as the grounds begin to awaken from the winter with spring flowers and blooming shrubs. The picnic tables, installed last summer, once again become a gathering spot on warm sunny days for the after school set. From the inside, looking out, one will notice that the birds are gathering at the feeders as the staff attempts to keep them filled. On the inside, there are some new plants in colorful pots, also courtesy of the landscaping ommittee.

‘Win with Reading’ month

April is “Win with Reading” month at Solon schools. The Solon Public Library librarians are taking part this year. Kris Brown, library director, went to Lakeview Elementary and read to the second graders. “It was great fun,” Brown stated enthusiastically. Jen Leveck, youth services librarian, will be going to the middle school to do some book talks.

Storytime happenings

April 19 will be the last day that Miss Jennifer visits the daycares in town. Twice a month during the school year, she goes to visit the kids at Play and Learn and All Aboard to do a Storytime. “I love to go and visit the daycares. It is one of the best parts of my job,” comments Jen. “During the summer, the kids from both daycares get to walk down to the library for Storytime, which is also really fun.”

New audio books

Now cataloged and ready for checkout are several new audio books. The entire “Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R. R. Martin is available. The first book in the series is called “The Game of Thrones”. “The Thief” by Clive Cussler, “Chasing Midnight” by Randy Wayne White, “Death of a Kingfisher” by M. C.

Don’t worry, it’s just practice

Before any Hawkeye fan gets too excited about what they did or didn’t see last Saturday at Kinnick Stadium they have to remember one thing… it’s still practice.
The Hawks were scheduled to have their spring scrimmage this Saturday, April 21, but the Olympic Wrestling Trials are this weekend at Carver-Hawkeye Arena so they moved it up one week.
That means they have three or four more practices and with a new offensive and defensive coordinator, each practice is so important.
