First Day of Fall

Say good-bye to summer, fall is officially here. The autumnal equinox, the day when the sun is exactly above the Earth's equator, has come and we all hope a seasonal change will soon come along with it. This day marks the first day of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and the start, hopefully, of cooler weather. At the library we have many great books and movies that celebrate the Fall time of year. We encourage you to take some time and enjoy a book outside this week.
