Have you ever wondered what the library staff is reading?  Well, here is your chance to see what I have on my desk at this very moment.  I can guarantee that you will see a few of these items at my Family Storytime.  Happy reading!

Something to Do David Lucas.

A celebration of the imagination reminiscent of Harold and the Purple Crayon.Big Bear and Little Bear want to find something to do. So they head out for a walk in the great white open —yet still, nothing. But when one of them picks up a stick, snaps it in half, and starts to draw a landscape, they realize that the only limit to what they can do is their imagination. And with these two, it turns out their imaginations are as open as the sky.Parents will welcome and children will love this funny, fresh, and adorable new book tackling the age-old misconception that there'’s simply “nothing to do.”
