At the Library for may 14th, 2019

Updated 2019/05/19



James Carl Nelson’s ‘The Polar Bear Expedition’ tells the little known story of how thousands of American soldiers battled in the Red Army in 1919, facing brutal winter conditions 600 miles north of Moscow.


Everything is going well for a homeschooled teen girl until her grandmother forces her to attend middle school in Stacy McAnulty’s ‘The Miscalculations of Lightening Girl.’


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 Teddy Bears!  Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.
