2 Spring | Welcome to our newsletter full of articles, resources, programs, and much more! Our mission at Chelsea District Library is to Engage, Inspire, and Equip through evolving services and resources. We hope that as you turn the last page, you will have found we've done just that! Ah, spring! Robin Williams once said that "spring is na- ture's way of saying, 'Let's party!'" We don't know about you, but here at the Chelsea District Library our idea of a good party inevitably revolves around books and writing. Whether it's creating opportunities for schoolkids to meet creators of their favorite books during Authors in Chelsea, hosting readings and discussions with nationally recog- nized writers during the Midwest Literary Walk, hosting our literary version of March Madness, or sharing good reads through storytimes and book groups, spring is definitely party time at CDL! It's also a time of hope and optimism, so it is fitting that teen writers and thinkers have a strong presence in the pages of this spring newsletter. Under the guidance of Shawn Sinacola Rodriguez, Chelsea High School students contributed poetry and perspective to this issue. I am sure you will be just as impressed as I am with the depth, talent, and fear- lessness of these young writers! We're so fortunate they joined the party at CDL! What's on My Nightstand? Born to Run, by Bruce Springsteen; The Tucci Table: Cooking with Family and Friends, by Stan- ley Tucci (Emily Blunt's chicken noodle soup recipe is a hit with my family!); A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles.

About 30 years ago, I had the opportunity to learn the craft of making stained glass pieces. Ever since then I have enjoyed making decorative glass items. In fact, I now teach a class at the Chelsea Senior Center." Interested in having your photo or artwork featured on our next cover?
