Thorndyke Thoughts

Hey kids! It’s Thorndyke again. Next week is going to be a great week at the library. Know why? Because it’s Children’s Book Week! The librarians are so very excited. They are going to dress like their favorite book characters all week, which explains why you’ll see them looking sillier than usual. I’m planning on getting in on the fun too, but I still have to think of a costume. I’d love your suggestions! And we’d love for you to tell us who your favorite book characters are too—you could even dress like them! Don't worry. If you can’t make it to the library next week, we’ll have pictures of the great costumes up in the library! Man, CPL’s such a fun place!
Bear Hugs!,
Thorndyke
