Hint of Summer....

Snow days, snow days, and more snow days! This has been quite the winter of predicted blasts, disappointing (depending on which way you look at it) nothings, and just-plain-confusing maybes. But finally I am having a chance to post, and it's gonna be simple, just a little hint of the blissful summer that is headed our way somewhere behind all this cold! So take a look at the new bulletin board that just went up in the Children's room.
Sorry for the poor picture quality, but 3 guesses on the 2015 statewide theme for Summer Reading!!!

Can't wait for a wonderful, superhero-ey summer!

"Audio Attention" Special Display

Try something NEW in the NEW YEAR!
If you are ready to cut your own ears off if you have to listen to "Let It Go" from Frozen one more time (and I know how you feel because my niece got a doll for Christmas that sings that song over and over again. In English AND Spanish. And I just can't let it go.), there is something less drastic you can do.

Check out the great kid-centered music CDs and audiobooks in our new Special Display - "Audio Attention"!
From silly songs to classical to educational and more, music CDs are perfect for the car, bedtime, or good ole' quiet time.

Audiobooks bring adventure to life, stretching your child's imagination and listening skills.
 Branch out in this new year. Give your eyes a break and exercise those ears!
