The Whistle Stop News

Serving the people of North Baltimore for 95 years

Volume 14 Issue 5 We Fly “Old Glory” proudly May 2014

The Children's Department would like the following materials for Summer Reading projects: plastic 2 liter bottles, plastic lids - coffee can size & smaller.

Also, for a science project program, needed are small appliances - radios, clocks, old desktop computers, old vacuums.

But please NO TVs. Thank You!

The Library’s Children’s Department is pleased to host LEGO® HOUR on Tuesday, May 13th and 27th.

We encourage imagination in children and LEGOS® give them a good way to use their imagination as well as work on fine motor skills in a fun way.

We often display the creations of the children in our Main Lobby in one of the display cases.

The Children’s Department is in the process of building a collection of LEGOS® for use by the children. If you have a stockpile of LEGOS® not being used at your house, please consider donating them to the Library. They will be used and enjoyed for years to come.

Spring Cleaning and Moving Furniture

The Staff has made lots of changes and improvements in the Library.

We were able to purchase a new TV and several items of furniture for the Teen area thanks to a generous donation from the N. B. American Legion Post #539.

We enlarged the area and added another book shelf to allow for more YA books to be added.

The old reference area was taken out and the newspapers were moved to the front of the Library with comfortable chairs to relax in while you peruse the papers.

The former newspaper area is now a quiet sitting / reading area. The sectional couch is there to provide a relaxing area to rest and read.

The two PCs in the reference area were moved to the quiet study area in the rear of the building by the windows. The 4 PCs in this area are for quiet research and homework.

Also in this area is a table to work on and a café-type table if you like taller chairs. Both are near electric outlets if you need to plug in your laptop or tablet.

The Library will be closed

Monday, May 26th in observation of Memorial Day.

May Almanac

May’s name comes from the Latin Maius mensis – meaning Month of Maia.

Maia (meaning "the great one") is the Italic goddess of spring, the daughter of Faunus, and wife of Vulcan.

May has always had 31 days.

May’s Birthstone is the emerald, which is a vivid green gemstone.

May’s Flower is the Lily of the Valley, which symbolizes humility.

May’s Full Moon is called the Flower Moon.

May's abundant blooms give its full moon the name flower moon in many cultures.

Other names include the Hare moon, the Corn Planting moon, and the Milk moon.

This Full Moon with be on May 14th.

May 26th is the day we will observe Memorial Day. It is a day established to honor the men and women who lost their lives fighting for their country and their homes.

There are many ways to observe Memorial Day, by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes, by visiting memorials, and by flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.
