@ the Library – Displays & Activities:

This month the library recognizes the contributions of military service people and their families. Check out their online booklist Families Together, Families Apart: Books and Internet Resources for Military Families. Want to know how you can help the families of deployed military in our area? Check out the website Joining Forces.

There is still time to put your poem on our Bulletin Board. Take a look at the poems & add your do-it-yourself creations to the Time to Rhyme poetry display on the bulletin board behind the reference desk—they have poems to illustrate, poetry starters and blank paper for your original creations—bring them to a librarian, and they will be happy to post them! Or check out Bruce Lansky’s funny poetry website!

In the mood for Little League? Check out our Batter Up! Great Books about Baseball display atop the magazine section. We also have books for Easter, Passover, and Earth Day atop the holidays section.

The witch and her cat are flying happily on their broomstick—until a stormy wind blows away the witch’s hat, bow and wand. A helpful dog, bird and frog find the witch’s lost things, and they all hop on the broom for a ride. Will there be room on the broom for everyone?
