Libraries want to help kids link to reading WEST COUNTY -- Crofton * Odenton * Fort Meade * Gambrills


With all that snow outside, it's hard to believe that spring is only a week away. And to make matters worse, schools are closed again today. Those of you who have been inside all weekend coping with cold kids, wet mittens, shoes and coats have to last another day.

But it could be worse. You could have an 8-year-old running a temperature of 103 degrees the night before the Blizzard of 1993. That's what happened with our daughter Kassandra. She's well on her way to recovery now, but she is one unhappy little girl who did not get to play in the best snow of her life. I hope that you are all dug out by now and ready for spring.

Anne Arundel County's public libraries want to create a chain with youngsters for "Link Up For Library Week," and are offering prizes as well. To get in the running, Crofton children should create a paper chain link, including the title and author of the latest book they have read, include the child's name and phone number and take it to the Crofton library.

The staff will turn the links into a paper chain, and participants will receive a bookmark from McDonald's. For more information, 222-7371.

The Bowie-Crofton chapter of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees will meet Thursday at 10:15 a.m. at the Bowie Library. Bas Masjian will discuss longterm care and Al Schaver will discuss his work with area school children.

For information, call Sherm Krasney, 262-5939 or William Schmidt, 262-2471.
