For Rick Riordan Fans

You've read the complete series of Heroes of Olympus AND the Kane Chronicles AND the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and now you're thinking, "there is nothing else to read!"

Thankfully, we have a ton of books that fall within the same Fantasy/Mythology genre.  These types of books are called read-alikes and will take you on the same mythological adventures as your favorite Rick Riordan series.

Just tell us, your friendly librarians, that you loved the Riordan series and we can help you locate some read-alike titles. 

Try some of the following:

Septimus Heap
The Unicorn Chronicles
Liesl & Po
The New Olympians
Seven Wonders
Heroes in Training

Fans of "Unfortunate Events"! Your new Count Olaf!

Good Morning, Lemony Snicket Fans!

Hope you've had your breakfast.

Back in 2014, it was announced that Netflix would be adapting your favorite tales of woe into a television series. Years ago, the first three books were brought to the big screen with Jim Carrey as the evil Count Olaf. Since that time, many had expressed their displeasure with the movie. Not because it had an unhappy ending -- we expected that much -- but many felt that Carrey, though talented, missed the mark on what makes the Count so frightening. In short, Jim was just too goofy.

Other complaints were with the film itself. The length. The tone. It just didn't feel right.

The news of a reboot was quite welcome. And then, it was announced that Neil Patrick Harris would be taking up the role of The Count. 
Can this face haunt our dreams?

Well, I was skeptical at first, until I caught some pictures of Harris on set? Look below, if you dare.  I believe he looks quite menacing!

Yes. Yes it can.

April is Poetry Month

In honor of National Poetry Month the children's room is celebrating with a Poetry Creation Station.  Have fun making a poem with cut out words, colorful paper, and glue sticks.  Just use your imagination and try different arrangement until you've created a found poem just for you!

Calling all practical jokers!


Do you enjoy a good prank? This Friday, April 1st, is April Fools Day!

While the first day of April has been associated with practical jokes since the 1300's -- first referenced in Geoffrey Chaucer's Canerbury Tales -- April Fools day does not exist as an actual public holiday on any calendar in any country.

A public holiday is usually established by the laws of a country. In spite of this, several cultures have long practiced the act of setting aside a specific day of the year to celebrate the art of the joke.

Just remember, a joke should be in good fun for everyone. No prank should be at the expense of someone's feelings.

Take advantage of this Friday to check out a funny book, or perhaps a book on practical jokes.

Suggested reading below.
