I must admit it - I'm addicted to the Fox television show, "So You Think You Can Dance." Every week I sit in my comfortable stuffed chair and snack on junk food while beautiful, athletic, and talented young dancers perform. I've never been interested in dance before, so I think producer/judge Nigel Lythgoe must be doing a good job. Recently, he announced National Dance Day, a time for everyone to "get up and move." Always thinking, if not moving, the lightbulb went off! Our library has dance movies and books. I can celebrate Dance Day by doing my favorite thing - reading or watching a movie. It's not what Nigel had in mind, but it works for me! You might also enjoy the following DVD's or books:
"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying..."
June is National Rose Month. Of course the library has lots of information on growing and appreciating all the beautiful varieties of roses for gardeners and aficionados.
But beyond the literal, the library has wonderful books to read and films to view to celebrate the power of the rose in life and literature. Below are a few suggestions. Share your own suggestions by clicking below on "add new comment."
