Why do I have a boot on my head? Well, to find out you'll have to read this great new book I found:
Squid and Octopus: friends for always by Tao Nyeu — It's about a Squid and an Octopus who are friends and the adventures they have. The stories are funny and the pictures are amazing.
Tao Nyeu, the author and illustrator, has two other really great books that you should check out. I give it two Paws Up. Way Up.Bear Hugs,
Families thinking about homeschooling through high school often have these questions and many more. Join us on Monday, August 27 from 6:45-8:45 PM as we come together to ask and answer questions about homeschooling through high school. We'll hear from families who have successfully made it through the high school years (and gone on to college success) as well as families who are currently in the process. If you are approaching the high school years in your homeschool, already in the high school years, or just thinking about homeschooling high school, join us for a night of answers!
The great cake mystery: Precious Ramotswe's very first case by Alexander McCall Smith ; illustrations by Iain McIntosh is a delightful read and a quick way to claim the Sleuth It badge in the CYS program. It is written by the bestselling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency (an adult series) and introduces readers to Precious Ramotswe as a child. When treats start disappearing from the kids' school lunches, a chubby boy named Poloko becomes the likely suspect. Precious believes he is innocent and sets out to find the real culprit. Set in a vividly realistic setting of Botswana with magnificent black and red illustrations and featuring compelling characters, this mystery will have readers of all ages clammering for a sequel.
I hope you are having as much fun earning badges for Connect Your Summer as I am. I've earned some by reading really good books, a couple more for doing some fun things here at the library, and few by coming up with some creative ideas all by myself. I'm sharing my badges so you can see all the things I've done. I love reading all the things that you have done to earn badges too. Keep up the great work!
I'm trying to decide what badge I should earn next, and I need your help. Find the poll and vote for what badge I should earn. If you do, you can claim Geek Out Badge. Thanks for your help. Bear Hugs,

All the J Series books that used to be shelved in aisles #19 & #20 are in the process of being changed to J Fiction in aisles #16 - #18. Most series already have titles shelved in J Fiction, either by author or series title if there is more than one author.
If you have any questions, stop by the help desk and we will be happy to assist you.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this last phase of this change-over project.
