  • Photo contest deadline soon; but be safe!

    The sunflowers in the field just north of Yellow Springs are a big draw this time of year. Shown above are several women from Columbus who last year took time to photograph the flowers just after attending a yoga workshop in town.

  • The Little Library that could

    Love of reading can now be shared at a neighborhood level using the new tiny library in Moya Shea’s yard at 310 South High Street. The little library operates more like a swap: take a book, leave a book. If the cranberry crate seems too small to serve the whole neighborhood, visit the Little Free Libraries website and learn how to start a library in your front yard.

    Many positive things can be said about libraries, including that they can’t be too small and a town can’t have too many.
