In the mornings and evenings of the cold seasons we are occasionally favored with glorious sunrises and sunsets. A few of those beautiful moments boast something beyond colored clouds and sky; they host sun pillars!
Winter doesn't officially begin until December 22nd, but it sure feels like winter to me! When the snow starts falling and falling and falling I love to snuggle in my favorite chair next to the fireplace with a fluffy blanket, a BIG mug of hot chocolate and a good book. Here's a few new winter easy reader books that I just finished reading and wanted to share with you!
The snow is soon to be falling and books are always calling! Cuddling up on the couch or in your favorite chair is a great way to stay warm this winter! The Youth Services Department has TONS of picture books to keep your children busy during winter break. Stop in, take a look and take home a book (or two)!
On the morning of Saturday, December 10, 2011 there will be a total lunar eclipse. While much of North America will be in a position to see this natural wonder, those of us east of the Mississippi are out of luck! Timing is everything in this case.
At the library, we get asked point blank, "What should I buy?" when it comes to ereaders.
With Thanks giving just around the corner and the winter holidays on the horizon, tradition encourages us to engage in certain kinds of reflection. We take stock of our lives, feel gratitude for what we have, and mark out a plan for the coming year. How will we improve our situation? Can we have more of what we want? What do we really need?
Check out these books, currently in the New Room, which address these concerns in an Edgy way.
