Summer

"Summertime, and the livin' is easy......," lyrics from the song Summertime.  George Gershwin, along with Ira Gershwin, composed the 1935 aria for the opera, Porgy and Bess.  

Just those few words emit a sense of "kicking back" and relaxing with a cool drink underneath a shady tree in the backyard when it is too hot to do the everyday chores.  I hope you are enjoying some time to relax and get away from it all.  Don't forget to include a good book while relaxing.  

Did you know that HTFL is now lending eReaders?  If you have been wrangling with the idea of purchasing a Nook or Kindle, drop in and check out one of the many we have available preloaded with book selections.  That way you can try before you buy.

Take time for yourself during this heat wave, come in to the Library and get cool, relax and let the good times roll!  Oh dear, I think I hear another song coming on :-)
