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.

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...
