Rescheduled - Yippe!

Our HOT AND COLD show with the Franklin Institute has been reschedule - yippe! It will be on Wednesday, December 15th at 7pm. This will be part of a series of fun programs in December to celebrate all the winter holidays. I hope you'll be able to join us!


A big sorry to anyone who trekked through the rain last evening to come to the Franklin Institute Traveling Science Show only to find a closed library! The power went out about 5:30 due to a pesky squirrel getting into a transformer down the street. The power was not restored for hours.

We'll be rescheduling the show for sometime in the near future and will make sure to post the info as soon as we have a new date!

Don't miss MusicWorks on Thursday!

 Don't miss a musical time with Mr. Jerry from MusicWorks! Join us on Thursday, September 23rd at 10:30am on the Second Floor. Enjoy singing, dancing, and a chance for your preschoolers to try out some musical instruments.

Animal Soup by Todd H. Doodler

Animal Soup is a new book by Todd H. Doodler that tickles the taste buds and the funny bone!

Get ready to meet squales, gorillacans, birdles, and many more mixed-up creatures when you try to guess what's under each sturdy flap. Bold art, playful text, and silly names will have children asking for a second helping of Animal Soup. This deliciously mixed-up animal book is a hilarious read for all ages! Pick it up today in the Children's Room!
