The crickets sang in the grasses. They sang the song of summer’s ending, a sad, monotonous song. "Summer is over and gone," they sang. "Over and gone, over and gone. Summer is dying, dying." The crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last forever. Even on the most beautiful days in the whole year - the days when summer is changing into fall - the crickets spread the rumor of sadness and change.
Summer is coming to an end on the Hilltop - but a wonderful fall semester awaits. Those of us who work in the library look forward to seeing many new and returning students over the next few days. We invite our new students to participate in the Library / ARC / IT orientation sessions on Monday, August 29 at 12:30 and 1:30, and also to view the "Top 10 library questions" asked by new students at BSC.
To our returning students we can simply say: Welcome back! We've missed you! Please stop by and check out a book or two (perhaps even a copy of Charlotte's Web by E.B. White, excerpted above).
See you soon!
