Library Corner for the week of September 20th

Updated 2021/09/17

As Manitoba summer transitions into autumn and our beautiful planet tilts away from the sun, our days become shorter and the trees begin to adjust for their winter sleep.  This can be seen as a time for self-reflection and perhaps celebration of our ability to thrive in a harsh climatic environment as we hunker down and prepare for the winter days ahead.  A great book, warm blanket and hot beverage come to mind.
