There's a mystery in the Children's Department...

     Psst...there's some books in the Children's Department that some people may not want you to see.  They're covered completely in brown paper.  If you'd like to solve this mystery, stop by our  Banned Books display and find out what's going on out there. 

 Elizabeth Hunt, a Children's librarian, does a display each year in observance of Banned Books Week (this year it's September 22-28).  The display is to inform parents, children and other adults about books that have been banned or challenged in libraries around the country.  The books are wrapped in brown paper, but there's a red flap you can pull up to find out about the book and the story behind the challenge or banning.

Help our dragon grow!

  September is Library Card Sign-Up Month.  This year we have a dragon hanging out on the bulletin board in the Children's Activity Space.  During storytimes this month, we will ask children to show their library card.  If they have a library card, they can put their name on a paper dragon scale.  We will be adding the scales to the dragon and we hope to have so many that the dragon will take up the whole bulletin board...
