Why Fluency Matters

It's great for kids to understand different words, but understanding the meaning of what they read is important too. Here's an infographic that explains the importance of fluency and comprehension and gives some tips on how you can work with your child to improve as readers.

Banned Book Habitat

The youth department is celebrating Banned Books Week with a display called "Banned Book Habitat." We think that it should be up to the individual to decide whether or not a book is right for them or their family. That's why the library doesn't ban any books.

Stop by until the end of the week to check out our display and make sure to take a Banned or Challenged book home with you to show your support for free speech!


Yesterday was International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

To celebrate, the YS staff decorated the front desk and dressed up like pirates. Arghhh!

We’re also having a Pirates Ahoy! Party this Saturday, September 21st to continue our celebration. Meet us on the Poop Deck (or the Meeting Room, for you land lubbers) at 10:30!

(Registration is required).

American Girl

Our American Girl books have moved!

They are now all grouped together under J AME so that they’re easier for all the American Girl fans to find. We’re as happy as Kit at her typewriter or Felicity on her horse.

Brighten Up at the Library


Using only 3 materials, we’ll construct our own mini pocket flashlights. So make sure you sign up for Science Club on September 2nd (the day registration opens). It’s going to be electric.
