Get Ready for Terry Border and this Season's Story Time!

Save the date of September 8th, because from 2-3pm Terry Border will be in the store for his latest picture book: Snack Attack! Only some of the snacks will be edible, so check first - the rest'll be part of Terry's demonstration of how he creates the bent objects that make up so many of his books! Terry's always a delight to have visit, so make sure to catch him while he's in town.

Story Time with Adriane Doherty

The fundamentals of language lay the foundation for reading - the stronger they are, the easier the rest becomes later. Any advantage - even just connecting the A-B-Cs to local landmarks - pushes learning forward. Grown-ups do this all the time for their children, but author Adriane Doherty's got a few books that can bring the landmarks to you! On Saturday, August 24th, we'll be hosting a special Story Time event starting at 1pm, featuring guest host Adriane Doherty, author of such books as Sweet Dreams Indiana and ABC Christmas.
