It Was Dr. Seuss Day!

Once again, we had a very successful drop in day at the library. Children of all ages came by for our fun Dr. Seuss-themed day and boy, did they have fun!  There were games, crafts and even a wacky photo booth! You can see more of the fun photos on our Facebook page!

Travel to a book!

At the beginning of our lives, many of us grow to love books. The stories often take place in magical settings or simply places we’ve never been and so seem magical to little readers. I came across a wonderful blog post about popular children’s books and the places that inspired them.  The comments below the article are just as interesting, with a small argument going on about the origins of Winnie the Pooh.
