The Latest Buzz...

Tue, 03/06/2018 - 4:47pm -- Miss Luci

Book Buzzers will find a lot to like in April's club selection: Esperanza Rising, by Pam Munoz Ryan. Even though published over 8 years ago, when it won many awards, the topic is in the current headlines almost daily. When Esperanza's wealthy father is killed in Mexico, she and her mother must immigrate to the U.S. to find work in the agricultural labor camps. She is in no way prepared for the poor living conditions and demanding work now expected of her.

You Read...Lilly Listens!

Tue, 03/06/2018 - 4:11pm -- Miss Luci

Our lovable Lilly continues to make a hit on her monthly visits to the library. She loves to meet and greet the kids, and she loves having them read to her even more! Each child gets a 15-minute private session to practice his or her reading skills, with Lilly sitting by to encourage...she never mocks or scolds! Some kids prefer to have other family members sit in...that's okay! Statistics show that reading to a dog can significantly boost a child's confidence when called upon to read aloud in class.

Reading to Lilly - Time Change

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 5:05pm -- Miss Luci

Lilly can't wait for her monthly visit to the library to see her young friends! She will be here on Thursday, March 1st, from 4:00 - 5:30pm.  She will sit by patiently and listen to the kids practice their reading skills in private 15-minute sessions. Children may prefer family members to sit in...their choice. If you would like to secure a time slot, you may call the library during the week prior to her visit...or, just drop by and hope for an opening.

Mother Goose Time

Mon, 01/08/2018 - 7:32pm -- Miss Luci

Mother Goose is on the loose, and there is still time to register! We are offering three sessions per week this winter, so hopefully there will be room for all those interested in attending. Simple books, rhymes and songs are often accompanied by bells,  shakers, drums  and such, which are distributed around the circle, much to little ones' delight. Parents and caregivers enjoy participating with the children...also an opportunity to meet other young families in the community!
