    The Olson Library is celebrating Dr. Seuss and the Read Across America nation-wide event the entire month of March. Please stop in for your Seuss-Tastic worksheets. Complete a line of 5 items horizontally, vertically or diagonally and turn it in at the information desk to get a free book from our donated stash. Add a marble to the One Fish Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish Bowl for every hour you read or hear books. Let's see if we can fill the bowl by the end of the month. Make a guess as to the number of marbles that will be added to the bowl. Closest guess will win a Seuss prize.

    Our Story Hour and Family Playgroup for today will involve plants and seeds in honor of the second day of Spring!! We will read The Plant That Kept On Growing, Planting a Rainbow and Mrs. Rose's Garden. We will sing songs and create micro-green gardens for each child to take home. We are excited to welcome visitors from the Phelps School. They will join us in this activity. Not only visitors but also, Marianne Lambrecht, a Master Gardener, will be helping Ms. Pat with the program and especially with the planting of the micro-green gardens. We have radish, broccoli, and other seeds to put in the gardens. With sunshine, a little watering and some TLC, each child should be able to grow greens for the family's salads. Please bring an adult with you to share the fun.

    Lakes are integral to Wisconsin, used for recreation, fishing, and drinking water. At the Center for Limnology , UW-Madison, Hilary Dugan, Ph.D., is working to understand the flow paths of water and carbon in lake-catchment systems. Through her research, she hopes to bring more awareness to water quality issues across Wisconsin. In the 1940s, Americans found a new way to love salt. Not simply for sprinkling on food — we had acquired a taste for the mineral long before that — but for spreading on roads and sidewalks. Salt became a go-to method to de-ice frozen pavement. During the past half-century, annual U.S. sales of road salt grew from 160,000 tons to about 20 million tons, as pointed out in a study in the Proceedings of the Natural Academy of the Sciences. NaCl kept roads free from slippery ice, but it also changed the nature of North America's freshwater lakes. Of 371 lakes reviewed in the new study, 44 percent showed signs of long-term salinization.
