Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: ‘March’ on into your local library

The month of March brings special events to our community — March Madness in basketball, St. Patrick’s Day, the first day of spring, and this year, Easter.

There’s something for everyone this month. Also, your local library can explore all those interests. Do you need to brush up on basketball rules? Find a book at the library.

Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day or do you want to know more about the origin of the holiday? Again, look at the library. Easter decorations and exciting new ways to dye those eggs? Again, the library.

As for me, I’m thinking about camping. Check out some travel books at the library and plan the summer! And don’t forget the Edible Books Festival at the Incline Library on April 1.
