Genre Bookmarks Template

Have you checked out one of our Staff Picks yet?  The Staff Pick of the Week can be followed on our blog, Facebook Album, or you could look at one of our Staff Pick Bookmarks.

We have 12 bookmarks broken up by genre, including: Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery, YA, Nonfiction, and Classics.  They’re even color-coded!  Nonfiction titles are blue, fiction is green, and YA is black.  Bookmarks can be found at the Circulation Desk, the Reference Desk and in the YA room on top of the display.   Not every bookmark is out all the time, so keep checking back!

We also want to know what YOUR favorite books are.  Tell us on Facebook or Twitter, and maybe one day we can have Patron Pick Bookmarks too!

Don’t forget to sign up for this year’s Summer Reading!  Registration just opened, get started today and earn some great prizes – check out our Summer page and look at the prizes you could win in your category. Please note that Children’s is broken into Toddlers and older children… both titled “Fizz Boom Read”.

We are very please to have the Nature Tracker’s Club exhibit in our main entrance display in the lobby!  This club is a group of 7-13 year olds who learn about endangered animals in a creative environment.  One of the involved children was very enthusiastic about not only the project but getting to express herself creatively.  If you’re interested in the type of things they do, please check out their website. Don’t forget to check out their exhibit the next time they come in!

Have you met our utterly wonderful Children’s Librarians yet?  Not only do they love their work, they love their crafts – as you can see from their program room decorations!  Come in any time when the Library is open or come to one of their many great programs, like tonight’s Magic Tree House Night at 7pm.   Check out their calendar and  check out their fantastic programs which run all year.

Happy Birthday William Shakespeare!   Although Shakespeare’s exact birth date is not known, scholars do know he was baptized on April 26, 1616 and have traditionally accepted his birthday as April 23, 1616.  Famous for his plays, sonnets and poems, Shakespeare is also responsible for many common phrases we still use today.  “Eaten me out of house and home”, “in a pickle” and “love is blind” are just a few.
