Zombie Awareness Month

Did you know that May is Zombie Awareness Month?  That it is a time to bring awareness about zombies and the possibility of a future zombie apocalypse?  If you did not, then you need to read some books about the walking dead and how to not become one.  Lurch on over to the library and check our display of zombie reading and get a leg up on how to avoid being undead and unread.

Comics & Graphic Novels

It is almost time for the school semester to end and that means that you can keep on reading but select some of the fun books you would like to read.  Some of those books may be comics and graphic novels, so the library has a special display of comics and graphic novels that are in the library collection.  Take a look on your next visit to the library and you may find some titles you will want to read when summer vacation starts--or read now, too!  Happy Reading!

Celebrating Mother's Day

This coming Sunday, May 8, is Mother's Day and I hope that you are planning to observe the day with a special celebration for your Mom.  To help you celebrate this special day, the library has a display of picture books featuring Moms that are appropriate for sharing with younger readers.  Please browse these titles on your next visit to the library and check out some of the books to read and share.  Happy Mother's Day and Happy Reading!
