Read It Again Please!

Does your child have a favorite book they want read over and over again? Or worse, wants YOU to read over and over again? You've probably memorized every word and by now you could throw the book out the window!

The Importance of Playing With Your Child 

We love to play here at the library. We offer playtime after toddler storytime and have various toys and activities in the children's room for you and your children to play with while you visit.

Before they were movies...

Did you know some of your favorite movies are actually based-off a book? The animated movie Coraline is based off the book with the same name by Neil Gaiman. The out of this world adventure of Home is based off the book The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex. Often times the movie will be different from the book. The next time you visit the library we would love to hear if you liked the book or the movie more.

Here's a list of our favorites;
