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!
The Tigers Home Opener is this coming Friday, April 10th. Even if you don't have tickets to the big game, you can get into the baseball spirit with a hotdog, popcorn, and a family-friendly baseball movie from CPL. Some of my favorites are The Sandlot, Angels in the Outfield, and Rookie of the Year. Batter Up!
Hi Kids! Thorndyke here! Did you know that today—March 19th –is Absolutely Incredible Kid Day? And since all the kids who come to the Canton Public Library are absolutely incredible, it’s a very important day to celebrate. My favorite way? With a song! Maybe "Skinnamarink" by Sharon, Lois, and Bram. Another great way is with ice cream! May I suggest the flavor Bear Claw? It’s my favorite! Have a great week, kids!
Hey kids! Guess What? Today it is only 100 days until Summer Reading! Aren’t you excited? This year the theme is Get Creative @ Your Library—but I can’t tell you any more because that would spoil all the surprises we have planned! All I can tell you is that it will be FUN! And guess what? Today also means it’s only 100 days until summer vacation. Good times. So if it gets cold later next week, just repeat this to yourself “Summer Reading’s Coming! Summer Reading’s Coming!” and the day will be a whole lot sunnier.Bear Hugs!
Boy! I can’t wait for March to get here. Why? Because March is Reading Month! And Reading Month means First Grade Round Up! This is the 18th year the Children’s Tween and Teen Services Librarians will host first grade classes from local schools. And I haven’t missed one yet! Kids get a tour of the library and meet my Giraffe friends Caribou and Rafiki. Then they make a craft and see a really funny puppet show. The best part of First Grade Round Up is that each First Grader gets a library card and checks out a book that day
That Lucas Grabeel (Ryan of HSM fame) starred in a little known 2008 film called The Adventures of Food Boy. He plays Ezra, who learns (at a rather inopportune time) that he has the power to make food appear in his hands. Like every super hero, Ezra struggles to decide whether he will use his powers to benefit himse
In honor of Valentine’s Day (by the way, have you seen my nifty Cupid costume yet?) I thought I’d share this conversation I overheard in the Children’s DVD section.
Boy 1 (picks up Free Willy 3): Let’s get this one.
Boy 2: No! Not that one. They kiss!
Boy 1 (shocked): They kiss the whale?
Boy 2: No! The boy kisses the girl!
Boy 1: Ew! Gross! Let’s get something else.
