Memorial Library Linda Denton There are plenty of things to talk about this week but let's finish what began earlier in the month, namely some of the things recognized and celebrated in February. I mentioned most of those last week but didn't get down to the nitty-gritty on all of them. For instance, National Wild Bird Feeding Month. If you want to know more about the feathered and very vocal visitors to your neighbor- hood, one way to do it is watch them in action. The best way to do that is to buy or build a bird-feeder, put it somewhere that allows yo u to watch in comfort and let nature take its course. The Bath County Library has all kinds of books on hand to help with the project, one of the most useful being Paterson's, A Field Guide to The Birds, Eastern Land and Wa[er 'L_Lr. This one has all kinds of infor- mation on a wide variety of birds along with great pictures to help you identify your visitors. Thom Bo- swell's The Bird Feeder Book. How o Build Unique Bird Feeders From the Purely Practical to the Simply Outrageous and Bruce Woods & David Shoonmaker's The Bird House Book. How to Build Fanciful Bird Houses and Feeders. from the Purely Practical to the Absolutely Outra- both offer just what their titles infer, a wide variety of designs that will appeal to the creative bent in everybody, including the birds. Charles SeWs Making Birdhouses & F_F_.c&d._ takes a practical look at the subject with the more basic designs and some discussion of tools, mate- rials and finishes. Birdhouses and feeders aren't the only way to attract birds to your yard though. George Adams' Birdsap- ing Your Garden. A Practical Guide to Backyard Birds and the Plants that Attract Them will tell you about plants that birds prefer for shade and shelter, nesting and food and how to match plants to various birds. Those of you who want trees to protect you from the merciless summer sun, but don't want to attract multitudes of birds to your yard or street might take a look at this to see what NOT to plant. Among the older books on hand are the 1981 release The Country Journal Book of Birding and Bird Attraction by Alan Pistorius which 4 ;i .... Owingsville Fire Department-- Members of the Ow- ingsville Fire Department stand in front of Owingsville's new firetruck after it was presented on Tuesday, February 19. Funds for the truck were made availablr by a USDA Rural Development Grant and a borrower contribution. Pictured from the left are: Susan Jones, USDA Rural Development, Willie Staton, Mayor Clarence Rister, is, according to its publishers, "A sensible, intelligent and witty guide to the basics of bird attraction" and The National Geographic Society's Song and Garden Birds of North America which has wonderful pic- tures and illustrations, as well as plenty of ornithological information. National "Something': Month To find out more about National Cherry Month, check out the Cherry Marketing Institute on-line at http'// www.cherrymkt.org/. If you want to enjoy cherries but have dietary re- strictions you might also take a look at Diabetic Recipes and Gourmet Diabetic Cooking at http:// www.fabulousfoods.com/features/ diabetic/diabetic.html or check out one of the many cookbooks at the library. National Snack Food Month can also be found on-line and in a variety of places. My suggestion is to dive into the library's cookbooks and find a recipe that uses your favorite snack food; one of those hot chicken salads with crushed potato chip topping or that strawberry pretzel salad dessert or whatever. And, if you missedits beginning last week, let me tell you here that the Chinese New Year began on Feb- ruary 12th. According to their calen- dar we have entered the Year of the Horse, or the Black Horse, depends on the source you read. You can find out more about it at Kid's Domain http://www.kidsdomain.com/holi- day/chineseny.html Another thing you can find out about at Kids Domain is Presidents Day, which may not have gone un- noticed since the kids were out of school both last Friday and this Mon- day. Library Lovers According to Library News, this is also Library Lovers Month and considering the budget cuts govern- ment is inflicting, local libraries need all the love they can get and that has to come from those of us who use and benefit from local libraries across the country. You can read more about it in an editorial by John N. Berry III in this month's "Library Journal" but I'll quote one sentence from that ed- itorial here, "When library service is created of the people, by the people, and for the people, and the people tell their leaders about it, it will sur- vive and succeed." So, while the legislature is in session, and politi- cians are trying to decide where to allocate what funds they will, let them know how important your li- brary is to you, your family, and your community, and that funding igneed- ed for those services to continue and to grow.

Just to give you an example, if you want a book that your local library doesn't have on hand, your librarian can go on-line and find out which libraries across the country do have it. They can then obtain that book through interlibrary- loan. That is just one of a multitude of services provided by local libraries, and by state and national library sys- tems, and in all probability they do affect you in some way. There are some things that are only as success- ful in your life as you allow them to be. Let your local library be one of the success stories in your life. Don't take them for granted, use them on a regular basis and enrich your own life while the library enriches the life of your community.
