Spring Story Time Registration is Here!

Next week (April 5th-9th) Books & Babies, Pre-School Story Time and Toddler Tales will begin again for the spring. Register now and reserve your spot by calling the library at 243-0440.

Keep the Ideas Coming!

43. Manatee books, Hardy Boys, and Loch Ness Monster. We only have one book on Manatees so you're right we need some more! We do have many of the Hardy Boy books, if there is a specific one that you would like let us know and we'll order it from another library for you. We do have several books on the Loch Ness Monster! Next time you stop in ask a librarian to help you find some.

44. It would be great if the library could buy the DVD "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." Thank You! We do own a copy of the DVD. It is a popular movie though, so if its not on the shelf make sure to place a hold on it.

45. Berinstain Bears "Wild West" Book. Tons more Arthur movies (for kids) The library just purchased Season 10 of the Arthur TV show! It should be here soon. Also, we will look for the Wild West book.

46. Have a shelf for stories written by local kids so kids can check out stories written by their friends, neighbors, etc. Have a club for kids who write stories and self publish them, print them, illustrate them, bind them, etc. We do have some stories written by local children in the collection, but not very many. This summer, however, we are hoping to sponsor a week long writing program for kids at the library! Kids will be able to work on their own stories and then they will be "published" in an anthology at the end of the summer. Look for more information as we get closer to the summer reading program.

47. Make a book about pink, sparkly cats and purple, sparkly dogs that live together in a sparkly pink and purple mansion. And they're billionaires! WOW! This sounds like a great idea for a story and I think YOU should be the author! You've got some fun ideas :-) We're hoping to have a writing club this summer at the library and this would be a good start.
