Winter is Coming: A Winter Wonderland of Books, Recipes, Films, and More!: Home



Winter is a time of cool weather, snow fun, and cozy nights curled up near a fire or in a favorite chair.  It's a time for hot cocoa and celebration!  In honor of this season, the library team has put together a guide that features winter themed books, winter recipe books, fun recipes shared by NVC staff to try at home, movie clips, film recommendations, and even a page sharing famous works of art about winter..  Enjoy!



Claude Monet, The Magpie (1868-69)


Paul Gauguin, Breton Village in the Snow (1894)

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening 

By:  Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.   

His house is in the village though;   

He will not see me stopping here   

To watch his woods fill up with snow.   


My little horse must think it queer   

To stop without a farmhouse near   

Between the woods and frozen lake   

The darkest evening of the year.   


He gives his harness bells a shake   

To ask if there is some mistake.   

The only other sound’s the sweep   

Of easy wind and downy flake.   


The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   

But I have promises to keep,   

And miles to go before I sleep,   

And miles to go before I sleep.
