Linnaeus had it right

Astute patrons may have noticed the dead tree in front of the Library has been removed. This void will not last long as the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library have generously donated the funds for a replacement which will be planted shortly. As for Linnaeus, he’s the one who said, “If a tree dies, plant another in its place.” You could look it up. Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations, 16th Edition, is located in the Laager Reading Room. Linnaeus is no relation to our Children’s Librarian Linnea Moosmann. She is named after his favorite flower, perhaps discovered on his Travels. He’s holding one in the picture below.
