Stuffed animals reading

Mark your calendar for our “Stuffed animal sleepover” on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 at 6:45!  This fun evening will be hosted by Nikki O’Connor and special guest readers.  Wear your jammies, bring your favorite stuffy and join us for stories and a bedtime snack.  This event is sponsored by Grassroots.

Lyn Ewing has read and recommends Metis Beach by Claudine Bourbonnais. “This was an amazing read – written by a woman but told from the point of view of a young man.  I couldn’t put it down.” She also recommends Uprooted by Naomi Novik.  Lyn picked up this fantasy novel by mistake and thought “why not?”  It turns out she was gripped from the beginning.  “A great read.  You’ll want to know what happens next.”  Thanks for the recommendations Lyn!

The other day a patron came in and checked out a number of children’s books.  We inquired if the grandchildren were coming for a visit but it turns out that she reads to them over Skype.  What a great idea!  That’s fun for the grandparents and kids and gives the parents a break as well.
