The new CD by The Derek Truck Band, Already Free, is a good example of how root forms of the blues have been transformed, yet preserved, by rock music. Trucks has an excellent pedigree in Southern blues-rock, taking up Duane Allman's mantel as the best living slide guitarist and incorporating a range of world music influences into his playing.

Hi there. I guess you heard we're moving soon.
That's right, we're getting a brand new aquarium!
I can hardly wait until our new home gets here.
Have you ever moved somewhere new?

Boy! I can’t wait for March to get here. Why? Because March is Reading Month! And Reading Month means First Grade Round Up! This is the 18th year the Children’s Tween and Teen Services Librarians will host first grade classes from local schools. And I haven’t missed one yet! Kids get a tour of the library and meet my Giraffe friends Caribou and Rafiki. Then they make a craft and see a really funny puppet show. The best part of First Grade Round Up is that each First Grader gets a library card and checks out a book that day
