Longest Day of the Year

   The summer solstice marks the longest day and the shortest night of the year. Following the summer solstice the days begin to grow shorter and the nights longer.

   This year, the solstice occurs on Sunday, June 21st, and is the first day of summer.

The sun will rise at 6:02 AM and will set at 9:11 PM, a total of 15 hours and 08 minutes of sunshine.    

 

What Librarians Learn From Kids

Regardless of the original color, flavor or brand, used chewing gum has no aesthetic appeal.  

There are 234,493 possible places to misplace a book, even in a small library.

Tear-proof book covering has not been invented yet.

 

There is no such thing as a "gentle" book return chute.

 

"No food or drink" signs mean different things to children and librarians.

 

One small bag of popcorn will cover a 30 foot by 30 foot floor with crumbs.  

 

Father's Day is Sunday, June 21st

 

Almanac – June

Named for the Roman goddess Juno, patroness of marriage and the well-being of women. Also from the Latin word juvenis, "young people."

 

June’s Birthstone is the Pearl, which is a white gemstone.

June’s Flower is the Rose, which symbolizes "Romance."

June’s Full Moon is on the 2nd and is called the Strawberry Moon.

    In North America, the harvesting of strawberries in June gives that month's full moon its name. Europeans have dubbed it the rose moon, while other cultures named it the hot moon for the beginning of the summer heat.

Anyone who has observed sunflowers knows that these large flowers get their name from the sun; not because they resemble the sun, but because their flowers and leaves move in an arc that tends to keep them facing the sun. In other words, sunflowers "see" light and twist on their stems in response to the direction of the light. They are ‘heliotropes,’ plants that are sun-orienting. The exact way they detect the sun is not known.

 

There are scans of historic pictures of North Baltimore available. 

Ask at the Main Desk and a staff member will help you.

 

We have past editions of the North Baltimore News and the Weekly Beacon on microfilm.

   We also have converted these files to digital PDF files.

Ask at the Main Desk and a staff member will help you view these on one of our patron PCs.

Librarian Humor

Why was the dinosaur afraid to go to the library?
One of her books was 60 million years overdue.

When a goose goes to the library, what books does she look for?  Peoplebumps books!

I was trying to find a book about Houdini, but they had all disappeared!
