Paws to Read

My name is Nugget and there’s nothing I love more than a good story. That’s why I can’t wait for the next sessions of Paws to Read! Paws to Read is a fun library program where I get to listen to kids read aloud. Did you know that reading aloud to a dog can help improve your reading skills? What a great way to practice!

S'mores in the Library
Posted by Kidbrarian on 04/04/12
I always loved camping. Sitting around a fire listening to scary stories, eating s'mores and trying not to burn my marshmallows. On Friday, April 20th, come to the library for our version of a camping experience. Scary stories, games and a craft are all part of it along with real s'mores and a not so real campfire. The best part - no bugs! For ages 8-11.
So Many Games.......

You probably already know the library has video games, but did you know you could ask us to buy a video game we don't already own? If it is still available for purchase, we will consider ordering it and you will be the first to check it out. Just remember, we can't buy used games.

Did you know that floodlights were first used to illuminate night baseball games in 1929? Some baseball fans were against night games in favor of tradition. The Chicago Cubs held out for over 50 years. It wasn’t until 1988 that Wrigley Field had lights!
