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:

The monuments men : Allied heroes, Nazi thieves, and the greatest treasure hunt in history / Edsel, Robert M.,

Weather Closures

The library is closed today, Saturday, Dec. 6, due to the weather conditions.  

There are several ways you can find out if the library will be closed:

  • call the library and listen to the phone message
  • visit our Facebook page (be sure you are visiting the page with current information)
  • visit our webpage (you are here!)
  • watch for information on news channels WCHS-6, WMTW-8, or WGME-13

Looking for Volunteers

volunteers needed

Have you ever considered becoming a volunteer at the library?

We have a few openings right now to work along side the Library Director

  • Tuesday nights from 4-6pm during the winter months (until about May, but that can be flexible).
  • Saturday mornings from 9-11am or 11-1pm
  • In January we will have an opening for every other Tuesday night from 6-8pm.

We are looking for anyone who would be willing to do whatever is needed.  Because we’re a small library and mostly volunteer-staffed, the job description covers everything from checking books in and out, shelving books, cleaning, etc.  This is a great opportunity to meet others in the community and find out about great books and authors.

We’re also interested in having a list of substitute volunteers we can call on when a “regular” volunteer can’t come in (we keep a schedule handy, so we know when people will be on vacation or have prior commitments)

Please contact Amy if you are interested.  Thank you!!
