While we wait (or hope) for Spring to arrive there is a new Muppet movie coming out in theatres. Looking at the picture, it appears that all of our favorite characters will be in it! Keep in mind that if you don't think you'll get a chance to make it to the theatre, we have plenty of Muppet DVD's at the library, waiting to be checked out!

We have noticed that a lot of patrons visit us and ask for cartons on DVD, as well as books including their favorite cartoon characters. Scooby-Doo is a good example of this. It's always fun to read about your favorite animated series. You often learn more about the characters, as well as get to enjoy some further adventures that you wouldn't have otherwise known about. If you want to see "everything" we own about Scooby-Doo, click here. If there is another show that you were hoping to find in book format, please visit us and let us know what you are looking for. There's a good chance we'll be able to help!

Are you struggling to find something to read? Have you recently read a great book, but didn't know what to pick next? Finding a great series can solve these problems. If you like the first book, you don't have to struggle looking for something to read for quite a while. All that you have to do is continue along with the adventure. With the constant snow falling (perhaps you may have noticed!), I'm guessing that entertaining books are at a premium...with that in mind, here are a pair of recommendations!
The 39 Clues series follows brother and sister, Dan and Amy Cahill in a global adventure. Per the wishes of their grandmothers' will, they race fellow family members in a quest to uncover clues to a family "secret" offering great power and wealth. Each book is written by a different prominent author. If you like mystery, adventure and history you may want to start with book one, The Maze of Bones.
The Red Pyramid is the first book in the Kane Chronicles series. You may have heard of the author, Rick Riordan. He wrote another very popular series for tweens and teens called Percy Jackson and the Olympians. The Kane Chronicles follows Carter and Sadie Kane on a dangerous global journey following the release of an Egyptian god. Along the way, Carter and Sadie also uncover information regarding their family lineage and history. This is another series for those who enjoy adventure and globe trotting.
Of course there are many other great series that we would be more than happy to tell you about. Ask a librarian the next time you visit!

If you are already spending time during these very cold (and very snowy) winter days by reading fun stories and going on page-turning adventures, I think there is an upcoming program for you! The 2014 Winter Reading Club, Fetch a Good Book, begins on Saturday, February 1st. Head down to the library on that day to receive your start-up kit. You can record the books you read and gain an invite to a very special celebration in March. Hopefully the snow will be melted by then! Don't forget, if you are looking for a great book to start reading, ask a librarian to help you find one!
