Here Come the Pelicans!

What delightful creatures that are now on display in the Goshen Public
Library-pelicans!  The latest display in the Local Collections Case has been
provided by Elaine and Jay McClung, beautiful pelicans longing for your
approval.  Also included is the famous poem about pelicans which one can’t
read without smiling:

                                “A gorgeous bird is the pelican,
                                Whose beak will hold more than his bellican.
                                He can put in his beak
                                Food enough for a week.
                                But I’m d– if I see how in hellecan.”

Often mistakenly attributed to Ogden Nash, it was actually written by C. M.
Marshton in 1913. To cheer-up your day, stop by for a gander-no pun
intended.  Your public library-a place for everyone and everything,
including pelicans!
