On Display: An Ode to Spring

“Give me the splendid, silent sun with all his beams full-dazzling.” –  Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass


Stop by the Greenfield Library display case to see some items that made us think of this much-anticipated season. We’ve pulled from the Floricultural Cabinet and Florists MagazineNatural Histories: Extraordinary Rare Book Selections from the American Museum of Natural History Library, Wilderness; A Journal of Quiet Adventure in Alaska, and The Naturalist’s Library: Entomology from the Visual Resources and Special Collections to create a display gives a nod to rebirth and renewal. To me, there is nothing better than sitting in the grass reading Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass so come by, take a look at the display and check out a book to read in the park! Happy Spring, everyone!


Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and other writings are available in several formats and multiple copies. Check here to view the titles and call numbers.
