Traditionally, today is May Day! May Day brings the love of flowers to everyone near and far. Many times flowers are left at the door of loved ones and friends. Today also brings us Mother Goose Day! The motto for Mother Goose Day is "Either alone or in sharing, read childhood nursery favorites and feel the warmth of Mother Goose's embrace." We have a great selection of Mother Goose books at the Menasha Public Library.
