    If you live in the town of Houlton, you’ve no doubt heard the crows’ concerts, morning, noon and nightfall. The flocks (murders, as they’re called) love the many tall white pines dotting our town.
    This week’s featured book by Marit Menzin, “Song For Papa Crow,” features Baby Crow wanting to sing as beautifully as other songbirds-many in this area. A mockingbird comes to Little Crow’s rescue with a magic seed to help his vocal endeavors.  Well, as one might expect, his music improves … But the resulting scarry action results in near disaster.
    We expect to read this book at a Wednesday Story and Craft time soon with either Shelley or Susan performing the sound effects.
    The Cary Public Library is open Monday-Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 532-1302.
