Free Programs at New Dorp Library: March 2012

March is full of sayings! Some people talk about the month as though it's an animal, giving it characteristics (like the "proud" lions that represent NYPL). Some call March a lamb — soft and innocent — while others throw insults at poor old March. They call it Madness. March Madness — what a terrible thing to say! I've never seen March go mad! Julius Caesar teaches us to beware of the Ides of March — March 15 — but if you're at the Library, you won't have much to worry about!
