Hooray for Spring Break! I bet you all are excited to have a whole week off of school. I'm excited to see a lot of you here at the library! The librarians have planned lots of fun things for you!
When you're here, make sure you check out our book display kiosk by the Children's CDs. Each month a different librarian has been putting their favorite books on display. Now, I'm not a librarian, but this month they're letting me put out MY favorite books! Oh Boy! It's a little hard to pick favorites. I love books about bears, because I like books with protagonists that I can relate to. But I also LOVE the books you hear in storytime and read for book discussions (did you know I read all those books with you? I just can't participate in the book discussion because I don't talk!). Come and check out what books I chose! Literally! Take them home with you! Because then I get to choose more books. And tell me, what's your favorite book? Can't wait to hear from you!
Online registration for both venues will be required; seating will be limited. Registration will be accessible via the Michigan Humanities Council website.

One of the most rewarding things I've done in the past few years was to start growing my own veggies. It not only encourages me to eat better, it also gives me a fun way to exercise, saves tons of money on my grocery bill, and provides me with a bounty that I can share with friends and neighbors. This book is a terrific guide for how to integrate veggies into your garden or start a vegetable plot from scratch. It contains a wealth of tips and tricks in addition to the basic how-to info. I got inspired to start growing my own food by reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.

Coraline is a movie based on an excellent book by Neil Gaiman, and this visual companion offers a wealth of behind-the-scenes images and information about the making of the movie. The stop-motion technique used to create the movie's sets and characters is a painstaking, detail-oriented process which in this case took years before the movie was complete. This guide has interviews with creators, cast and crew, as well as many concept drawings and a jackpot of other neat information.
