“Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we’ve no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”
These are the lyrics you might be singing as the winter season begins in the Midwest. The last line of the verse might be what you sing if you are playing outside and you enjoy the snow or if you make your living by the amount of snow we receive each year. You might be lucky enough to be all curled up in front of a fireplace with a good book or watching a movie. But what if you hate driving in this weather? What if you don’t like the cold temperatures? What if you just sat down to read a book and you realize that you already finished it? You don’t want to go out on the messy roads, but you really want to read. I have the perfect answer! The first thing you need to do is go to your computer and type in www.davenportlibrary.com.
