Thank you to local author Maria Gianferrari for sharing her heartwarming story about pet adoption at our Operation Rescue Dog event Wednesday night. We adored the three furry friends Rainy, Holly, Marcos, and Joyce, with New Love Animal Rescue, brought for us to meet. Kids loved getting to "adopt" their own rescue puppies. And thank you to all the families that donated dog supplies for NLAR. It was an evening at the library where the cuteness levels were off the chart! 🐶

Ashburn Adult Book Club -
Tuesday, May 7, 7 pm.
Musicophilia: tales of music and the brain by Oliver Sacks.

"Oliver Sacks explores the place music occupies in the brain and how it affects the human condition. In Musicophilia, he shows us a variety of what he calls "musical misalignments." Among them: a man struck by lightning who suddenly desires to become a pianist at the age of forty-two; an entire group of children with Williams syndrome, who are hypermusical from birth; people with "amusia," to whom a symphony sounds like the clattering of pots and pans; and a man whose memory spans only seven seconds - "
Come share in the discussion.
