Sneak Peek of What is on My Desk...

Have you ever wondered what the library staff is reading?  Well, here is your chance to see what I have on my desk at this very moment.  I can guarantee that you will see a few of these items at my Family Storytime.  Happy reading!

Something to Do David Lucas.

A celebration of the imagination reminiscent of Harold and the Purple Crayon.Big Bear and Little Bear want to find something to do. So they head out for a walk in the great white open —yet still, nothing. But when one of them picks up a stick, snaps it in half, and starts to draw a landscape, they realize that the only limit to what they can do is their imagination. And with these two, it turns out their imaginations are as open as the sky.Parents will welcome and children will love this funny, fresh, and adorable new book tackling the age-old misconception that there'’s simply “nothing to do.”

Has your child or infant joined the Summer Reading Club?  If so, don't forget to count the books that we have read during storytimes and programs, towards your reading goals!  

Toothy Tales


 Chomp! Toothy Tales to Bite Back the "Summer Slide." 

 "The researchers concluded that two-thirds of the 9th grade reading achievement gap can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities during elementary school. This achievement level is a huge determinant of whether students stay in school and follow a college-preparatory track."
