Story Time topics for January are:
1-20 Splendid Friend Indeed

Come join Libby (the library cat mascot) and the rest of the children for some stories, songs, crafts, and snacks.
The Write Your Own Book Competition is in full swing this month. Rules went out to school libraries so check with your librarian for a copy of the rules. They are also located on the kids page and there is a blog with the rules in it. Just check the December archive to see them. I am looking forward to all the great entries we will be getting this year for the competition. You have until February to complete the book and turn it in to the library.
We have some wonderful new books this month in the library. We also got some wonderful donations that have been put in the collection. Stop by and pick up a book and write a review of it and we'll post it on the blog.
