Hello Spring!

We made it!  Spring is here on the calendar, and is earlier than it's been in over a century!

The birds start migrating; trees will be budding, animals come out of hibernation—so much nature to experience and learn about.

Get out and enjoy nature!

Make sure you have a Audubon Nature Guide in your pocked to identify that bird, butterfly or plant you see on your walk.

Happy Reading!

more care tips

Whether the books on your shelves are first editions or book club favorites to enjoy them for years, follow these tips.

Never store your books in direct sun to avoid sun-fade. Also, avoid heat and humidity.

Add your books to your dusting routine to avoid musty smells and mildew.

Consider wrapping older books in acid-free, UV-resistant plastic book cover to protect cover.

Store books away from heat sources like the furnace vents. High temperatures can crack leather spines and make book glue fragile.

Taking care of your valuable books will preserve their monetary and sentimental value, and guarantee that they will be enjoyable for years to come.

Reading can transport you to another world

Reading enables you to experience many lives in diverse places without leaving your home.

One day you’re a Tsar in Russia, the piloting a rocket ship to Mars, planning your next African Safari.

Sometimes you explore places that only exist within the pages of the book you're reading.
