A Bear for You

As the cooler weather comes with this time of the year, you probably are thinking of a comfortable chair, some hot cocoa, and a good book to cozy up with.  And what better stories for young readers than picture books about bears?  To help you find some good stories on your next visit to the library, please check our newest display with picture books about bears--"A Bear for You".  As always, if there is a book, movie, or CD that you need, just ask us and we will request it for you.  Happy Reading!  

That's not a kitten!

We've been trying to catch two feral kittens here at the library and succeeded in getting only one of them. I've named her Shelby and she's very spoiled now. Pictures will be posted as soon as she holds still long enough! We've set some traps for Shelby's sibling but haven't had any luck yet. We keep catching other animals though.

Here's our latest attempt:

Possum

We let him go and hope that he got home safely. Please feel free to share any kitten trapping tips if you have any.
