Take a look at these books!

There are some exciting new titles in the Children's Library.

The Big Picture Story Bible is just right for reading aloud to little ones.

The beautiful illustrations in If You Hold a Seed tell the story of planting and growing in the springtime.

A mouse, a fox, a cat and a magpie each tell a familiar bible story but through the eyes of an animal in Animal Tales from the Bible

New Books

Some new books made it into the Children's Library last month.  The Big Picture Story Bible is a new illustrated version of the bible for kids.  Great for reading aloud to little ones.  Older children might be drawn to Samson, a graphic novel retelling of the old testament story.  If You Hold a Seed is a unique picture book with dreamy natural illustrations.  These are just a sampling of the exciting titles that were added.

There's a new display in the library this week.  Beautiful Easter eggs painted by the women from the Montgomery County Correctional Facility as part of the Brush with the Law program are adorning the shelves.  Stop in and admire their handiwork!

And while you're there, pick up a book or two for holy week.

 The Christmas lights are up in our cozy Children's Library.  Come in and find a nice holiday book!

We have several books about St. Nicholas, learn about his history, his good deeds and how he became tied to the Christmas holiday.


 There are two wonderful books about candy canes- a staple of Christmas decorating and eating!

And of course the Nutcracker...

Soft pastel pictures decorate this version of e.e. cummings poem "Little Tree"- a sweet homage to picking out and decorating the Christmas tree.
 After enjoying our Christmas pageant last week, pick up some of the beautiful Nativity storybooks.

Or see how countries around the world celebrate this season.

Have a very blessed and joy filled Christmas!!
