Let’s Get Baking!

It’s the beginning of spring! On this second day of the season, it seems more like a winter day. The wind is blowing, the trees are swaying, and there is more than just a small chill in the air. Thinking about the weather, and how I wish it were warmer, it strikes me that there is a wonderful way to warm up—baking! I don’t even need to have my own baking pans, because here at the Lambertville Library there are many baking pans available to borrow. I could borrow the loaf pan to make a nice pumpkin chocolate chip loaf, or I could borrow the cake pan that looks kind of like a star. I think that pan would be perfect for a spicy gingerbread cake. There is a pan I could borrow to make Easter egg cakelets, just in time for Easter! There is also an Easter-themed cookie cutter set that I can use to make tic tac toe sugar cookies. St. Patrick’s Day has just passed, but there is nothing to stop me from borrowing the shamrock pan to make a lemon snack cake with a lime frosting. And if I can’t find the perfect recipe on my own, I can borrow a baking book from the huge selection of cookbooks! Spring, you might be starting off with a chill, but I don’t have to freeze. Baking will warm up my kitchen, and the anticipation of delicious cakes will keep me warm!

This is where the paperbacks were until recently. Before that, audiobooks lived there. Before that I don’t know, but maybe it was DVDs. Things change in the library, lately at a more rapid pace. Some of the changes are subtle, and someone has to point them out to me. Some I know about in advance, but some are surprises, which always adds more fun to a day. This used to be a big, white bookshelf, and it still is, underneath it’s fancy new display. Someone worked magic on it, and we now have a place for you to share your experiences and stories about your time in the library!

Here Come the Shad!

It’s not April yet, but it’s close. I was crossing over the free bridge to Pennsylvania the other day, and traffic was slow enough that I could look out at the scenery, and I was happy to see yet another harbinger of spring–a small boat, anchored near the bridge, line fishing. They were fishing for shad!
