Greetings Minerva-Land,

 

When the weather forecast calls for 60 degree days, followed by a snowstorm,
it must be early spring in Maine.  And as another month ends, another list
of the new, the cool, the hot, and the most wanted items are beloved patrons

-          Among the 23 books in the top 50 most request items, 13 are
