The bookmobile was here!!!!

I'm happy to announce that last week the library had a visit from the bookmobile. This means that there is a new selection of books and movies for all ages. So stop on by and take a look.

Bookmobile Visit

Good news everyone the Bookmobile was here today! I'm so excited to let everyone know that we have a ton of new items in the collection, for everyone. Hope to see you soon!

New DVDs

I happy to announce that we have a few new items to the collection. For the Young Adults in town we have three new books.

Spanking Shakespeare by Jake Wizner
Loving Will Shakespeare by Carolyn Meyer
Beastly by Alex Finn

Yes, I know that two of the titles have Shakespeare in them, but believe me they are two completely different books.

For the Children's collection we have two new DVDs Enchanted and Ella Enchanted. Also stop by to see some of the great treasures that have been pulled from the stacks. Which included one of my favorites; The Missing Mitten Mystery by Steven Kellogg.

New to the adult collection we have The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. And for those Indy fans that couldn't wait to the fourth movie to come out, we now have Indiana Jones that the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on DVD.

These are just some of the new items that we have in the library today. Now if you stop by after Thursday we will have a fresh selection of items from the Bookmobile. Which I know is over due and everyone is waiting for. So stop in and take one of these great items home for the weekend.
