Recent acquisitions in the Water Library

"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush." - Doug Larson

March feels like the longest month of the year when you live in Wisconsin. The days get longer but there is still a foot of snow on the ground in Madison. The vernal equinox happens but that just means the days are only as long as the night. Dreams of green grass and daffodils are just dreams. Happily it is a good month to read and maybe plan your gardening or some summer travel.

Wisconsin's Water Library invites you to check out our new acquisitions list of books cataloged into our library in January and February 2010. The library has been heavily acquiring materials on climate change but there are also new titles on shipwrecks, writing science, and titles on the care and feeding of frogs.

Wish you had a green thumb? How about making that thumb even greener with a few tips and helpful guides to garden in an environmentally safe way? If you prefer to read books about green gardening or environmentally-friendly lawn care, be sure to see our recommended reading list - it's chock full of great readings.

And if you are beginning to make summer plans, be sure to consider our Great Lakes. There is so much to do and see.

Happy reading!
