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!

Come join us as we watch The Wind in the Willows on Tuesday, May 27. The movie is 7 – 8:15 PM in our Community room. Bring your own picnic supper or just a dessert or snack to munch on while you enjoy this classic children’s novel brought to life on our large screen.
This Martin Gates film (1996) is closely based on the book The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame and takes place in the woods near a riverbank, where we meet Ratty, Mole, Badger – and Mr. Toad, whose love of fast cars lands him in jail. Can his friends help save Toad Hall from the stoats and weasels? Will Mr. Toad break out of jail?
Please register so that we can set up a table for your group.
Parent must accompany children at all times during the film.
Suitable for families, this film runs approx. 71 minutes.
