Birthday Fun All Day on Saturday

Amelia Bedelia Celebrates a Landmark Birthday

Amelia Bedelia, the well-meaning housemaid in Peggy Parish's famous children's books of the same name, is fifty years old! We are celebrating her birthday with an interactive display. Those of you who have loved her books will remember that Amelia had difficulty understanding English idioms, with hilarious result. So when Amelia's boss leaves her a note to change the towels, dust the furniture, draw the drapes, put the lights out, measure two cups of rice, and dress the chicken, --well, check out our display on the first floor to see what she did. 

Happy Birthday Dr. King!

 Martin Luther King, Jr. was a very important figure in our American history. He was someone who stood up for what he believed in and never backed down. He made such a huge impact in history that we feel it's effect to this day. Some people saw him as a hero, others saw him as an inspiration. In memory of Dr. King's birthday, I have listed a few titles that recognize all our American hero's throughout our history. Be sure to check these out on your next visit to the library.

Evelyn Meador Branch Turns Twenty-one!

What would you do if you hosted a birthday party and no one came? That was a question we were asking ourselves up until the day of the party. But we needn’t have worried! In spite of the fact that the library has been closed since last September (thanks a lot, Ike), and the heat has been record-breaking, lots of kids and parents are joining us at the Seabrook Community House for our summer programming. Already this summer, almost 600 people have attended the various shows. That’s not bad for a library that is closed!
