“What We Were Reading” is a look back into the Lake Bluff Library’s history during the 1930’s. Every week the Library published a list of books and events going on in the “Lake Forester” newspaper, similar to how we post here on our blog. This is a fun retrospective as we celebrate our centennial anniversary.
Spring and garden planting time is now here and the poster on the bulletin board is symbolic of the season.
“Oh, the green things growing, the green things growing,
The faint sweet smell of the green things growing!
Oh, the fluttering and the pattering of those green things growing!
How they talk each to each, when none of us are knowing.”
