Don't forget that every Friday afternoon the library offers classic movies for free in our meeting room. The movie starts at 2:00 each week and refreshments are served. Check the Classic Movie Fridays page for upcoming films.
Children's librarian Anna attended a BCCLS Joint Committee meeting, which discussed standards for acquiring picture eBooks. This is still a sticky area of publishing because publishers do not always ePublish picture books as they were meant to be viewed (ie, eReaders display one page at a time, rather than a two-page spread). What are your thoughts on picture eBooks? We would love to hear from you.
The library will acquire passes to the American Museum of Natural History. Please stay tuned for more details.
