Don't forget, the library is a great place to come to cool down and regroup during Sidewalk Sale. We are just a short walk south of all the action.
Our summer reading programs have reached the half-way point, but don't worry, it's not too late to sign up, read and earn prizes!
Reading Level: Grades 4 - 7
Sam Toop has lived all his life above Constable & Toop. His father builds caskets for Mr. Constable, the mortician. Perhaps his close association with death is the reason Sam is a Talker (someone who can see and hear ghosts). Meanwhile the ghost Lapsewood has worked for many years filling out forms in the bureaucratic monstrosity of the afterlife. Little do they know that Sam's life and Lapsewood's afterlife will be forever changed by a mysterious disappearing of ghosts from haunted houses.
Reading Level: Grades 3 and older
When the mythical Fray returns and destroys the Munrung's village with its terrible winds the entire tribe must make a perilous journey across the Carpet, battling the mouls who are said to control Fray, as they search for a safe new place to live. If you liked the Borrowers or the Littles you will enjoy this book about the microscopic beings that live in the wild jungle beneath your feet. (and it will make you look at your vacuum cleaner differently too.).

This week Miss Deena's storytime theme is "Gardens". She will be reading books, singing songs, doing fingerplays, and more all about gardens and plants. The highlight is when the children learn how dandelions re-seed themselves and then get to spread their own "dandelion seeds".
