Where'd you all go? I've been seeing you all summer at the library, and then this Tuesday, you were all gone! The library has been so lonely and quiet, Please come back! Miss Ruth tells me you all started school this week and that's why you haven't been around during they day. Boy. I hope your teachers start giving you lots of homework so you have to come and visit me… or not. I hear homework isn't really that fun. But I hear that Storytime resumes next Monday. That should bring quite a few of my friends back.
Are you like me and can't wait for storytime to resume? You can watch one of our Online Storytimes, or read a story off of Tumblebooks. Both are really fun! I'm counting down the days until you all come back. 3 days and counting! Until then,

Usually, the second Sunday in September is Grandparents Day. But given all that grandparents contribute to families and society-at-large, why limit the tribute to just one day? Join us in celebrating Grandparents Week 2011, from September 12th through the 16th. If you're a grandparent, be sure that you and your grandkids visit Generations United's special site during this week to find fun and meaningful ways to celebrate. The site offers blogs, a peek at celebrities who were raised by their grandparents, social activities to do together, and special ways to thank grandparents.
Note: We meet the third Wednesday, November 16, this month.
