Celebrate Noel Streatfeild's birthday on December 24th! Come to the library early (we're closed on the 24th and 25th) to check out some of her books. My favorite is Ballet Shoes, and the library has many other fiction books about ballet, or informative books on dance. Come check them out!
Well, we've missed the actual day (November 10) of Neil Gaiman's birthday, but it's never too late to celebrate a wonderful author! He's gotten a lot of attention this year between winning the Newbery Award for The Graveyard Book, and the release of the film version of Coraline. If those piqued your interest, you might enjoy other books by Neil Gaiman. You'll find them all over the library, for Children, Teens and Adults.
Happy birthday, Sesame Street!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Take some time this week to celebrate Julie Andrews' birthday (October 1). If you haven't read one of her books before, she has written several under the name Julie Edwards. It's also the perfect week to check out Mary Poppins, or any of Julie Andrews' other movies. Happy Birthday, Julie Andrews!
