Re-theming for 2019

In 2019, the oasis celebrates the 200th anniversary of Walt Whitman’s birth. With the new year, the oasis name has changed to “Brooklyn Ferry,” in honor of one of Whitman’s greatest poems … a poem about place and the connection to the rest of humanity and the cosmos Whitman feels through this specific place.

Along with the change in name, the prompt in the hiker register has changed to reflect the new theme.

Copies of Whitman’s poem “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” were added to the Little Free Library, and I added what I hope will be sturdier booklet containers.
