New books and movies are arriving daily this week at the library.  We are working to get them out on the shelves as quickly as possible.  About 10 new movies are already on the shelves.  Roughly 30 new books for adults will be out early next week.  And the 2011-2012 DCF books will be out in time for spring break.  The 80+ books we received through the Libri Foundations Books for Children went out on the shelves in mid-March.  There’s bond to be something for everyone.  Check the card catalog  to see if a book is available.

Don’t want to check out a book?  How about buying one?  The book sale room has reasonably priced books, audios, videos and jigsaw puzzles always available for purchase.

Have a few minutes to spare?  Help us put together a jigsaw puzzle!  We’ve set up a table near the checkout desk with a really old puzzle with very thick pieces for you to work on.  It’s a challenge as these are not interlocking pieces.

Wondering where the frogs have been?  New pictures have been posted recently from trips to Honduras, France, India, China and Japan .
