Hey Kids! As of today it’s less than 50 days until Summer Reading (and summer vacation—hint hint!). It’s even starting to feel like summer! Thankfully the library is nice and air conditioned. Very important for someone who wears a big fur coat like me!
The weather is getting warmer and children are eager to play outside. Their curiosity often leads them to investigate all the little critters crawling about, and sometimes a bug or two might even make its way home with them. Then what do you do? The Animal Planet Pet Care series has a book Bugs as Pets which tells you how to house and properly care for your new "pet".

Hi Kids! It’s Thorndyke. Did you know that today is Administrative Assistants day? Administrative assistants is a big word for people who work really hard making sure things run smoothly and orderly. The Canton Public Library has lots of great administrative assistants. One of them works in the Children’s Library. Her name is Miss Erin. She does lots of great stuff for the children’s librarians. She makes all our Summer Reading Logs look so cool. You might also see her feeding the fish, or just generally being helpful. So if you see Miss Erin today, make sure you tell her thank you! We love you Miss Erin!Bear hugs!

With so many ponds nearby, I've been noticing a lot of ducks waddling around outside the library. Ducks are such nice birds — sometimes I like to feed them bread! I like reading about ducks, too. What about you? The library has lots of great books in our Readers section all about ducks! Try:
Ducks in muck by Lori Haskins ; illustrated by Valeria Petrone
Lucky duck by written by Ellen Weiss ; illustrated by Brian Lies
