We’ve got so many great book giveaways!

   Just a small sample of some of the books from BookExpo

Several of our Children’s Librarians were lucky enough to attend School Library Journal’s Day of Dialog and BookExpo. Day of Dialog is a fun day filled with author talks and book panel discussions. We also came home with loads of books, some of which will be available as gift books for our summer reading program, and some of which will become part of our collection.

We hope all the kids participating in this year’s summer reading program get to take home some of these books!

Star Wars Day: The Force Was With Us

On Friday, May 4th, we celebrated Star Wars Day in the Children’s Room.

After getting our Star Wars names, we played some trivia, and there were quite a few Star Wars experts in the crowd. Then there were three different stations for the kids to visit: a photo “booth,”

the Death Star Trench Run,

and lightsaber building.

And to end the event, it wasn’t a trap…it was Admiral Ackbar Snackbars!

Of course, no Star Wars event is complete without a few lightsaber battles.

Legos and Beekle: a great pair

This month, our Literary Legos book was The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend, by Dan Santat. The participants showed a lot of imagination in building their Lego creations: we had buildings, a seaport, imaginary creatures, and more.

Literary Legos will take a brief break in June and will return in July.
