Hello Springtime!!

“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”
Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

Have you checked out any of our gardening books lately?  We’ve got a nice collection!  What better way to wait for the snow to finally melt away!  Here are just some of our many titles:

The list could keep going, but why don’t you stop by the library and peruse for yourself!

Wonderfully Silly Children’s Books

So, I’ve been posting lots of new books and audiobooks that we’ve been adding to the library lately.  Well, now I’d like to introduce some fun children’s books that I’m adding to our collection.  These were a favorite with my children and I was surprised we didn’t have any of these in our collection before.  I needed to remedy that!  Mo Willems writes wonderful, silly stories about a pigeon who doesn’t always like being told what he can and cannot do.  I highly recommend these simple, fun books for your children.  Here are the ones I’ve just added to our shelves:

Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus! / Willems, Mo.
The pigeon needs a bath! / Willems, Mo,
Don’t let the pigeon stay up late! / Willems, Mo.

Lots of new books and audio books

Keep watching, we’ve got lots of new books and audio books coming in.  Here’s a peek at today’s additions:

Recently Added Titles –
The monuments men : Allied heroes, Nazi thieves, and the greatest treasure hunt in history / Edsel, Robert M.,
Promise Me; The Woods; Hold Tight Unabridged CD Collection Coben, Harlan
Dust / Cornwell, Patricia Daniels.
Everlasting / Noël, Alyson.
