April 5th was the first day of the Major League Baseball season. The season runs through October, so don't forget to follow the Deroit Tigers. If you love baseball, there's not just the Majors to watch. The college season has already begun, the Frontier League beings in May and there's always the minor leagues.
April 22 is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. April is often referred to as Earth Month. This is a time to celebrate our wonderful planet, to promote global awareness, and to find ways to prevent global warming. Check www.earthday.org for more information and events. Be sure to attend our Think Green programs. Here are just a few “green” books available at ROPL to get you started.
There are many novels we enjoy because they are fast reads or present mysteries to solve. In those books, we get caught up in the story arc and we can’t wait to see how they turn out.

They are the ones that some of our patrons tell me are reads that “stay with you.”
