Library Notes for February 1, 2017
Do you know what the New York Public Library’s number one check out for 2016 was? You might think it would be: “NYPD Red 4” by James Patterson. But it isn’t. It was “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins. So, what was the number one check out at John L. Street Library? It was “Lone Heart Pass” by Jodi Thomas. Have you read it yet? Several patrons have.
We have a lot going on at the library this month! We are having a Pokémon Scavenger Hunt- ask at the front desk for a scavenger hunt form. Find all the Pokémon in the library and win a Pokémon. This Saturday, February 4th at 1:00 in the basement of the library President George Washington will be here to tell us all about his life and being the first president of the United States. On Saturday, February 18th Alyssa Foster will be in the library board room to “Show & Tell” us more about the Blind and the useful things the blind use every day to help them. She is a delightful young lady who is willing to share her knowledge. She will be here from 9:00-12:00. I hope you will stop by and enjoy this busy month at your library!
