The new year is here, and Book Buzz is on it! On Monday, January 8th at 5:00pm, all the buzz will be about I Funny, by James Patterson. The central character is a mid-grade stand-up comedian who tells jokes sitting down because he is in a wheelchair. All the elements are in place: family situation, bullying, friendships, and a large dollop of humor. If you like a good joke (or a bad one!), there's lots to amuse, as well as something to touch your heart.
Magformers are back! Every month, there will be a designated time when we will put out our large collection of these fascinating building toys for free play. No need to register…just come on along. To round out 2017, Magformers will be available on Wednesday, December 13th from 12:00 – 4:00pm. Starting off the new year, we will put them out on Thursday, January 4th from 10:00am - 2:00pm.
She's back!! Brary, the library's very own Elf on the Shelf, is moving in for another holiday season, planning to arrive on December 1st. But where is she? She likes to get around a lot, so you will need sharp eyes to spot where she's hiding on any given day. We only know she will stay in the Children's Library. A small reward is being offered to any kid who reports a sighting to the librarian. Rumor has it that Brary keeps a list and reports back to Santa on how well kids behave in the library. But it's only a rumor...nothing to be concerned about!
Is Lilly coming in December? Yes, she is! She wouldn't want to miss a chance to meet with the kids who want to read with her. Lilly will be visiting us on Tuesday and Thursday, December 5th and 7th, from 4:00-5:30pm. Each child gets 15 minutes of private time with Lilly to practice his or her reading skills. They may involve family members if they wish. This is a great confidence booster for reading aloud in class!
There's nothing like a cozy mystery to chase away the winter chill...Why not buzz on down to the library on Monday, December 4th for some fun bookchat about Tracy Barrett's whodunnit, THE SHERLOCK FILES: 100-Year-Old Secret? Xena Holmes and her younger brother Xander are surprised when a mysterious stranger passes them a note telling them that they are descendants of the famous detective who shares their last name... and indeed have inherited his diary of unsolved cases!

The holidays are upon us...a tough time for some of our military personnel stationed a long way from home and loved ones. A card from a child can bring cheer to a seaman, soldier or airman/woman serving overseas to preserve the freedoms we cherish in America. Materials are available in the Children's Library....won't you stop by and make a card today? They will be sent off in the middle of November, so time is of the essence!
