Give the Gift of Reading
Books may not always be on the top of your child’s wish list along with all the electronics and dolls, but there are lots of fascinating, fun, books that children will enjoy and that you can share with them.
For younger children, Mo Willem’s Piggie and Gerald books are always a hit; Waiting is Not Easy is the newest title in the series. Girls never tire of looking at Barbie or Disney Princesses. Girls who love horses will like the new chapter book series based on Marguerite Henry’s Ponies of Chincoteague. If she’s an American Girl doll fan, there are books to match their favorite character.
Boys regularly ask for our LEGO books (Legends of Chima) or Star Wars books. Pete the Cat is one groovy cat that all kids enjoy. Kids can hear these stories over and over and laugh each time. For older readers and sports fans, Derek Jeter’s new book The Contract will be a hit. Guinness World Records books continue to be popular. Try the new fantasy series Spirit Animals or humor series Stick Dog or Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
The list of books goes on and on. Stop by the library to see some of the new titles that could appear under your tree.

Library staff will pick K-3rd grade kids up at school and escort them to the story room for movie day. Due to the school dismissal time for 4th & 5th graders, they will have to make their own transportation arrangements for attending movie day. Parents, please remember, a note needs to be sent to school giving permission for kids to walk over with library staff. Space is limited and kids need to be registered at the library by 4:00PM on Wednesday, December 17. To register for the December Movie Day, call 924.3561 or email Pam at email@example.com.
