Gunk and Muck Reads @ Your Library

Have you ever read a picture book story about garbage trucks?  About being stuck in the mud?  If not, then visit the library and browse a new display where the theme is "Gunk and Muck."   Along with the picture books, there are nonfiction books in which you can learn about swamps and marshes, and other wet and muddy places in nature.  If you can't find the book you want, please let us interlibrary loan material for you.  Happy Reading!

Sink Your Teeth into a Good Book!

One of the things I like to do when I was growing up was to visit the zoo.  I was fascinated by the different types of animals and could walk around for hours looking at the lions, zebras, bears, and various types of birds that were part of the zoo's collection.  But I never lingered long at the alligator pool; I would take a quick look and move on.  I never trusted those alligators--and still don't!  Now, I may not like to get too close to the alligators at the zoo, but I do like to read about them and crocodiles as well.  We have a new browsing display here at the library of informational books and picture story books about alligators and crocodiles for you to "sink your teeth into."  Ouch! and Happy Reading!
