Of course, not the real Harper Lee. A mockingbird. This gutsy little critter just flew right in like it owned the place and sat in residence all day! Our patrons and staff were fascinated with this new avian acquaintance until finally, late in the evening, Harper Lee decided to land on the floor near a back door and allow herself to be escorted back into the great outdoors.
Lest you think Post Road has all the excitement, don't forget to stop by the Hampton Park Library this Saturday for Earth Day festivities with the Forsyth County Master Gardeners or visit the Cumming Library to view the River of Words exhibit.
We're planning to read a few gardening books in honor of Earth Day. What will you read this weekend?

"Harper Lee” visited the Post Road Library today.
