Gustafer Yellowgold has arrived at the Canton Public Library. Who is Gustafer? He's a creature that moved to Minnesota from the Sun. He has a pet Eel and a Pterodactyl best friend. And in his free time he jumps on cakes and punches cheese. The DVDs in this collection include stunning artwork and original songs and are for ages 3 and up. Of course, if you can't wait to check out the DVDs, the creator of Gustafer Yellowgold will be at the Barnes and Noble in Rochester Hills next Friday, June 12th. Gustafer's website also includes short songs and fun games to play.
The Walt Disney Studios has recently begun releasing a new line of DVDs called the Walt Disney Animation Collection Classic Short Films. Included in this series is the Three Little Pigs, Mickey and the Beanstalk, The Reluctant Dragon and the Tortoise and the Hare.
Memorial Day is this weekend! If your plans lean more towards grilling at home than campfire hotdogs and smores, don't forget to stop at CPL for a movie! It's perfect for a family movie night at home. It's also great for that long car ride to the cabin up north. Here are some vacation themed films to get you started.
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!
