Lib Loop: Libraries are for the birds

Anne Greenwood
Lib Loop

Stop by your local library and check out our great bird collections. We’ve got your ornithological needs covered: bird identification guides, bird house construction books, bird call CDs, children’s bird books, bird related DVDs, and personal advice on where to look for birds.

Perhaps you’ve noticed all the local nesting activities and want to identify your avian neighbors. Or do you wonder which bird makes the cute “Cheeseburger” call?

How about distinguishing all those bobbing birds on the lake and feathered friends in the sky? “Tern” your fascination with birds into a studied pursuit, no need to go on a wild goose chase. You need not “parrot” another’s view, come to the library and build your own “Bird Brain.”
