"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!

From all of us...to all of you!

These Calendars are Kindof a Big Deal...

Drumroll, please! Trumpets blaring! The 2015 fundraising calendars have arrived!
That's the front, of course. See how we helpfully included the library hours on there for ya?

But the real gold is on the inside:
41 pieces of original fanciful artwork by Southern Lehigh youth. Librarians climb incredibly tall ladders! Curious George chases a tiger! The solar system enjoys a good book! And more!

Cost is ONLY $10 and 100% of proceeds go to benefit the library, thanks to the local businesses that advertised and entirely covered production costs. Get your copy before they disappear to parents and grandparents all over!

Thursday, Dec. 11 from 7 - 8 pm, Miss Maggie will be here singing with her Christmas elves!

Christmas songs, movement, audience participation & an elf named "Spaghetti Head Fred". Sounds like a good-time recipe to me!

Register online here, or just stop by!
