"Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.' "

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), U.S. writer, poet & literary critic. The Raven, (L. 1-6),
first published in 1845

TIME: 1:31 PM
PLACE: Public Library (Downtown)
SUBJECT: "Raven" - by Dale Rogers, Massachusetts & MonkeyBoy

My kids, especially DramaQueen, love to read.  Our library has a summer reading program each summer.  We went today, but found out that the program does not start until next week.  That's ok...we usually go to the library on a weekly basis during the summer months.  So we will definitely return next week to sign them up.

A new sculpture was recently installed in front of the library in conjunction with our city's "Sculpture in the City" program.  A local law firm was the sponsor of this particular piece.  Of course I had my camera with me.  MonkeyBoy gladly posed with it for me.
