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.

Is it just me, or did summer really fly by this year?  I can't believe that school has begun and that teachers will be assigning papers and projects soon.  When you need articles, images, and resources for school projects, try the library's online resources.  You can use them 24/7.  Just login with your library card number and password. ...
