April 2018 Photo Round-Up

Maybe April is the Cruelest Month because it goes way too fast.

It started with Easter on April Fool’s Day.

Guerilla art by Alexandra Bell appeared at the Pomona College Art Museum and Honnold Library.

The annual International Festival at CMC and Alumni Days at the colleges rolled around on schedule.

Progress is evident at the new Pomona College Art Museum.

Stop signs are ineffective against nature.



Library Closed for Renovation

The Claremont Library has closed for renovations starting this past Monday. Claremontography took a last look around before the closure. No one is exactly sure when it will reopen, but hopefully by 2019 we can enjoy a new space.

The refurbished Children’s Room (2014) will not need any touch-ups at this point.

One can still drop off books at the library, but for ordering books from the county system, you can go to the Hughes Center to pick up and return books.

The hours are slightly different, though, and it was only by visiting the Hughes Center that Claremontography discovered them.

A post about a library is a great place to link to poetry about libraries. Enjoy these poems by Nikki Giovanni.

Where the Sidewalk Ends, Bends

The Fitbit requires lots of daily walks – daily walks along the same paths. The Fitbit may not require looking down, but after awhile one notices lots of things about sidewalks.

This sidewalk that stops in the middle of the schoolyard reminds one of Shel Silverstein’s poem Where the Sidewalk Ends (read it here).
