SHARK WEEK!

Did you know that a Great white sharks can live up to 70 years?


How about that recent studies show that sharks might be colorblind?

You knew that?

Alright, but did you know that some sharks make "mental maps" that can help them navigate to locations they have been before?

Do you know which shark has the strongest bite?

Are sharks endangered?

Do they migrate?

Why am I asking so many questions about sharks?  Well, from August 11th-17th it's Shark Week!


What is Shark Week?  Back in July of 1988, The Discovery Channel held the first Shark Week which aimed to spread awareness (and respect) about sharks.  Since then, Shark Week has become an international phenomenon. Shark Week programming can be found in over 70 countries, and has spread from just a Discovery Channel festivity.


So how can the library help you celebrate Shark Week?  Well, not only do we have some wonderful non-fiction books about sharks, but a fun array of fiction books that shark lovers can sink their teeth into! 

My personal favorite is Gilbert the Great, by Jane Clarke. 
Who can deny a smile like that?
So as the summer begins to fade, don't be afraid to go in the water, but definitely don't be afraid to come to the library to devour our collection of shark books!  Just please don't return any books with bite marks.

You're a robot. I'm a robot. Everyone's a robot!

Robots were everywhere in the Children's Room this summer.  Our robot photo-spot offered our patrons a chance to be a "robot".  The fun was not limited to our patrons, however.  Your library staff also got in on the fun.  

Take a look:



Thanks for being such good sports everyone!
