Optimism is a Snowman
My arms are frozen, but not my toes!
(Oops, I don’t have those)
I’m pale as a sheet, but steady on my feet.
(Drat, no toes, no feet)
Winter’s my friend; may it never end!
The snowmen will be happy to stay outside, but you can come inside with us to enjoy warm thoughts and cheering stories during Children’s Storytime in the Erwin Library on Wednesday, January 8th from 9:00-10:00 a.m.
As you step out of the Wayne Learning Center third floor elevator to enter the Erwin Library, you’ll see a bright new bulletin board display that encourages everyone to Fall Into a Real Classic! Pictured are a tantalizing array of books, all available on your library’s shelves to check out. From A Christmas Carol to The Martian Chronicles, from Beowulf to Dracula, from A Tale of Genji to A Tale of Two Cities; it’s a great collection to dive into!
What did WCC students do in 1972? How about those hairdos .. and that’s the faculty! You’ll see it was a slightly different world, but still Goldsboro and still our school as you flip through thirteen newly digitized WCC Yearbooks (Yearbooks link) published between 1964 and 1985, now part of the WCC Historical Archives. You’ll also find the WCC Campus Voice newspaper (See: Newspapers) published between 1968 and 2008, and the WCC Renaissance literary magazine (See: Campus Publications) for 1985 through the present.
As well as browsing among, or checking out, books from the Erwin Library exhibits and collections to read about these topics, you may wish to discover more on the internet from relevant links found in the Erwin Library’s Blog.
