Insider Tips for Successful Trips to the Library

All Aboard!

This years summer reading theme is "Have Book Will Travel." It's important to organize a travel plan before you head off to a new adventure. The same is true when you take a trip to the library.

 It is my goal, to provide you with the tools that you need, to support a positive library experience for your family.

Oh, the Places You Will Go, When You Open a Book!

Explore India @ Your Library

 

* Space is limited.

Thursday, May 16th @ 10am.
This year, as we celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month,  we will be traveling to  India. Children and their  families are invited to join us for a free  puppet show.

* Tickets are not required. The safety of the children we serve is our first consideration. Room  capacity, as  determined by the fire  Marshall, as well as our desire for a  high-quality program necessitates limits.

This program will be in place of our regularly scheduled storytime.

Be First in Line

Here are a few books that will be on the shelves soon but they are not there yet. Grab your chance to be one of the first people to read these funny tales by placing a request on them today.

Tea Rex  by Molly Idle

Playing host to an unusual guest Cordelia tries her best to make sure her tea party is a smashing success. But no matter how closely Cordelia follows hosting etiquette, her prehistoric friend plays by his own rules.

Where are you Caillou?

Caillou is a book character that many children are fond of. However, I noticed that several of my young friends were having difficulty finding these books. Why? 

At the library, we organize picture books by the author's last name. However, Caillou is one of those series that has been written by several different people. Consequently, many friends are not able to find what they are looking for.

I have gathered these items for you and they are now located on a display in the children's area. I hope that this makes it easier for you to find the items you want to read.

 

What Was Curious George's First Job?

This week in storytime we celebrated Curious George. During the program I had asked, "What was Curious George's first job?" Did anyone figure it out?  Not sure. To discover the answer checkout Curious George Takes a Job  by  H. A. (Hans Augusto) Rey and  Margret Rey.
