During my first visit back to Woodland Public Library in almost a year, I took in the view — new carpeting, lower bookshelves to let more natural light in. Giving the building some space has certainly made for some improvements! The entire literacy center has been remodeled, though is empty yet thanks to COVID-19.
I made a beeline for the poetry section and felt the urge to take out every Mary Oliver book on the shelf, of which there were six. I’ve been reading and re-reading them over couple weeks. The poem “Beans” was discovered and felt worth sharing here.
