‘Leave it to Beavers’ is a new documentary film which advances the theory that beavers may indeed be the key to reversing the effects of global warming.

For younger readers there is Nikki Tate’s ‘Deep Roots,’ which explains the vital role trees play in sustaining life on our planet.

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about Monsters!
