April Is...

April is so many things!

If you believe T. S. Eliot, it’s the "cruellest month." (See see Eliot’s poem, "The Wasteland" found in The Complete Poems and Plays, 1909-1950 [810.81 ELI].)

If you believe the Easter Bunny, then it’s a time for jelly beans and Easter eggs. (See Llama Llama Easter Egg by Anna Dewdney [BB DEW].)

If you believe the Red Sox, then it’s the beginning of a winning season of baseball. (See The 50 Greatest Players in Boston Red Sox History by Robert W. Cohen [796.357 COH].)

If you believe the calendar, then it really is spring, and any day now, all those dirty snow piles will melt away and trees and flowers will be blooming! (See Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms by Julia Rawlinson [JP RAW].)

April is also the month of Earth Day (see When Rivers Burned: The Earth Day Story by Linda Crotta Brennan [J 333.72 BRE]), Jazz Appreciation Month (see The Rest is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century by Alex Ross [780.904 ROS]), National Poetry Month (see A Poet’s Glossary by Edward Hirsch [3M ebook]), and National Humor Month (See Jokelopedia: The Biggest, Best, Silliest, Dumbest Joke Book Ever! [see 3M ebook]).

And today, April 1, is April Fool's Day! You won't be a fool is you visit the Library today! As a matter of fact, I'd say you were pretty smart!

Happy April!
