Scary Stuff Happens
There are 10 spooky stories in the book, Things That Go Bump in the Night.  Web addresses and passwords are in the book so you can watch the video ending of the stories.  Another good thing - each story takes about 15 minutes.

Our good friend Bear is back, and this time he has a loose tooth. His friends try to help pull the tooth out, but their tricks don't work. Finally, Bear is able to wiggle the tooth out all on his own.  As Bear sleeps that night, a fluttering tooth fairy leaves him a plate of blueberries. Pair this new one with Bear’s other charming adventures.

Let's say you get home from school, have a snack, ride your bike, then start thinking about homework. You pick up your backpack, look inside and whoa! Something's missing - your Math book. Don't panic. Call or come into the library. We may have a copy of your Math book for you to use. We have many textbooks from area schools. We keep them for occasions just like this - when you forget to bring yours home. See you at the library.

Did you know that author Dav Pilkey was only in second grade when he first came up with the idea for Captain Underpants? He and his friends were constantly making flip-o-ramas just like Harold and George. Dav also holds the record for the number of crayons he can stuff up his nose at one time. I think writing is easier. For books call us or stop by. We have them all.

Just like many of you - I love Harry Potter - books and movies. I saw the movie the first day it came out. When did you see it? Did you like it? I’m going to see the movie again – but then what? Many of you have told me you’ve listened to the audiobooks. I’ve never done that so I’m going to start. The library has all of the audiobooks. So I’m going to get listening!
