I thought we would talk about the Kansas Library Card program of books online with it’s Overdrive program. This program lets you download audio books to your computer, ipod, or mp3 player. There is music, children’s books, and adult books available. Mrs. Murray has just finished The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas by John Boyne. She enjoyed it so much she will be purchasing it next year! Mrs. Dunn is listening to Desert Rain by Elizabeth Lowell, a cowboy romance. Come to the library and ask about a Kansas Library Card and the Overdrive program!
We have new materials in so check out the new materials page, a really cool book that shows you what makes us sneeze, and John Grisham, Lisa Scottoline, and more!
Mrs. Dunn is reading Paint the Wind by Pam Munoz Ryan, I am reading Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper, the first in The Dark is Rising series. Mrs. Wasson is reading The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs by Betty G. Birney. We also have just purchased The Spiderwick Chronicles which is coming out in the theaters soon, I have read the first in the series and it is good!
I just finished The Misadventures of Maude March or Trouble Rides a Fast Horse by Audrey Couloumbis. What a fun read and thank you to Tina to suggesting this book to me! I also just read Lowji Discovers America by Candace Fleming and it was a funny book that was very enjoyable. Both of these books are on the William Allen White list, I think I am down to Airball, Adam Canfield of the Slash, The Seven Wonders of Sassafrass Springs, The Penderwicks, Shanghai Messenger, and one other title that has left my mind. Remember to come see our Leap Year Feature and look on the new materials page I will be listing some new books and DVD’s.
