Get Ready For School at the Library.

Children's librarians know summer is coming to an end and school is just around the corner, when suddenly two groups of parents and children appear at our desk. One group is looking for books from a 'required reading' list they were given back in May. The second group ask if we know of any books about starting kindergarten.

If you are a parent in the first group, do not panic. You still has two weeks to finish those lists. Drop by the Children's Department and let us help. Of course we realize you do not want to waste one moment of these last days of summer vacation anywhere but relaxing, so remember you can visit our web page. By completing a simple search for the title you can reserve it or place a hold on any material from the convenience of your home, after spending a relaxing day at the pool of course! 

For the second group of parents and children looking for books about kindergarten. Boy, do we have so great suggestions for you!
