Celebrate Children’s Book Week

Children’s Book Week is the perfect time to enjoy new juvenile and teen literature.  Do an advanced search of the library’s online catalog to limit your search to picture books, or juvenile or young adult materials.  Use the library’s online databases like NoveList or Read the Books to find new books that interest you or a young person that you know, or try Tumblebooks, the database that brings storybooks to life with animation, audio, video, and activities.  Also, don’t forget about our weekly Story Time, Tuesdays at 10:30 for ages 3 to 5, and Wednesdays at 10:30 for infants through age 2.
