It's the day of the winter solstice. The shortest day of the year. The onset of winter. The beginning of the return of the light. It's also one of two days in the year when an egg can be balanced on its end. It's a day that can go by without much notice or with grand fanfare.
So whether you would prefer to acknowledge the solstice in a quiet or loud fashion, the library has books, DVDs and music to support your welcoming of winter. You can start by enjoying the Windham Hill Artists CD entitled "Winter Solstice." Then crack open The Shortest Day of the Year: Celebrating the Winter's Solstice by Wendy Pfeffer or Rosamunde Pilcher's novel, "Winter Solstice." Then you can slide the DVD, also entitled "Winter Solstice" into your computer or DVD player to savor.
Welcome winter! Bundle up and come visit us soon!
