We have recently added Playaways to our collection and thus far they have  received much praise from parents and children alike. And now that summer is ending Playaways are great for siblings who may be sitting and waiting at a dance studio, sporting event, or a meeting their adult is attending. They are also wonderful for long car rides; each child can listen to his or her own story. From picture books to teens, we have a varied selection. An...

  The summer reading program for teens and adults was an overwhelming success; thank you to all of the teen participants of the 6 Book Challenge! We had 24 teens complete the challenge and receive the thermos prize. As summer begins the wind down, remember the library offers a great selection of SAT and college prep books for your college planning needs. Our extended weeknight hours (until 8:30pm Monday-Thursday) means the library will be...

Lions & tigers & bears, oh noooooooooooo! Those aren't the animals that are coming to visit next week! But Rick Roth, from Creature Teachers, assures me that he will be bringing us some very unique critters, with their own stories to tell! Since kids are crazy for critters, we are offering two shows, back to back, so we can fit everybody in! We still need you to sign up on-line, since there are space limitations for use of the room....

Hey, kids! Guess what? The number of visits to the Reporting Lab this summer just topped the1000 mark! Was yours one of them? So far, over 7000 books have been logged in...but there's lots of time left to bring the number up to our annual average of 20,000. The Mad Scientists are still in the lead, but the Robots are narrowing the gap...keep up the good work! The Lab Rats are not that far behind...thanks to all the parents and siblings who've...
