Miss Lou's blog
Louella Moreland, youth services librarian, has a blog that can
be found through a link on the library Web site. She discusses new
books, introduces library programs and takes polls. Tell her your
ideas and suggestions, and take a look at photos and video from the
recent Lego tournament!
On March 30, the library will have an "American Girl Tea." There
will be refreshments, of course, and an opportunity for girls to
talk about their own American Girl doll. Plan on a sweet,
old-fashioned "tea time"
for moms, dads or grandparents to share with their young daughters.
Call the library at 732-5732 for more information.
Do you have any American Girl clothing? We're thinking about a
fashion show at the above event. Something your daughter has now or
has outgrown? We would love to borrow the items for our tea. Please
contact us at 732-5732.

Read-alikes" to help you find authors who write in a similar genre
that you enjoy reading. Also investigate "Award Winners," "Book
Discussion Guides" or "Feature Articles" for a wealth of
information. You can even establish a file to keep lists of titles
for future reading, as you are sure to find more titles than you can
read at one time.
