  • Children reading
    Posted on: Tuesday, August 25, 2015

    Getting kids reading before kindergarten is foundational for a lifetime of literacy. Does this mean kids should be reading independently before Kindergarten? Absolutely not! In this librarian’s opinion, reading together with young children is way more important. Read to your children. Have them read to you. If you’re able, carve out a special time each day when you share stories with each other. If you don’t know what to read, your friendly neighborhood librarian is here to help!

  • The End of Summer - Confessions of a Futon Revolutionist
    Posted on: Friday, August 21, 2015

    Summer is almost over and all of my favorite things will turn into new favorite things—long hot days and nights that give way to cool autumn mornings and warm afternoons (you know, the kind where you can’t quite figure out how to dress your kids and thank goodness someone invented the hoodie). This summer I became engrossed in two soul-searching memoirs that I read with intent and meaning and did not want them to reach an end.

    The year 1997 came and went like a candle in the wind as the world mourned the loss of Mother Theresa and Princess Diana and we moved on from "MMMBop" to Hale-Bopp. Take a step back and remember the year in which this year's high school seniors were born.

  • Go Set a Watchman bookcover
    Posted on: Friday, August 14, 2015

    The literary world has been delirious with excitement since the announcement in February that a second novel by Harper Lee had been “found” and was to be published.  To Kill a Mockingbird was Harper Lee’s first (and until now only) novel published in 1960, winner of the 1961 Pulitzer Prize, and certainly one of the most beloved novels in American history.  Having recently read Go Set a Watchman which, at this writing, is #1 on the New York Times Bestsellers List, and, judging by our holds, it’s a very popular book (but don’t worry we have plenty of copies!)
