Today at storytime we talked about stripes! You can wear stripes on your socks, your shirt or your pants. You can see stripes and patterns all over nature. Can you name some animals with stripes? We talked about zebras, tigers and a flamingo named Sylvie. Some stripes are silly while other stripes are serious. One of our serious and honored stripes are those found on our Grand Old Flag. Our flag has white and red stripes in honor of the first thirteen colonies. The flag also has a pattern of fifty stars for each of the states in America.
Today's storytime theme revolved around spots and dots! Are you wearing spots or dots today? Yes? Congratulations! NO? Quick! Get your circle stickers! Now, you can enjoy a full day of spots and dots. The authors we enjoyed today were Sarah C.
Last Wednesday, Miss Pippi got the opportunity to visit friends at After School Matters. What a grand day to visit friends! We read books, chatted about upcoming library programs and discussed a wide assortment of topics including dinosaurs, mythology and Mo Willems. Here's a small sampling of the books, Miss Pippi brought along for her visit...
Many times in winter, water turns to ice. Ice can look beautiful, spectacular, scary and sparkily. Our friend Mole in Diamond in the Snow thought an icicle looked like a diamond.

Graphics Novels are books written in panels or comic-strip format. They are fantastic if you like to see pictures, actions and emotions while you read a book. The Teen Zone hosted a Graphic Novels section for a long time. Now the Children's Room is making room for their own Graphic Novels section (We won't forget to mention general fiction in the adult section either.) If you like to browse through the bookshelves, look for the red sticker located on the book spines. The sticker looks like the image to your right. You'll see these stickers throughout the library.
