Patron Book Review
Looking for an interesting read today? Want to know what books other West Greenwich residents are enjoying? One of the Louttit's patrons, Nancy Brown, has written a review about The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. Read the first few paragraphs below, or read the review in its entirety by clicking here.

"When you were growing up, did you have a favorite tree? Last year, the Arbor Day Foundation recommended celebrating Arbor Day by sharing favorite childhood memories about trees. Maybe you have one?

"My favorite childhood tree was the tall stately elm standing alone in the field next to my parents’ house. A small forest of saplings surrounded the seventy-foot elm. I gave the saplings no notice except they offered a place to hide from my little sisters while I read my library books, Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys."
