Saturday, April 6 at 6:30pm - Luke & Sarah Foster along with Rhys Talbot will entertain us with a wide spectrum of musical styles from sultry tangos to jazzy riffs along with popular show tunes and classical favorites.

If you have young children in the household on a regular basis or on special occasions, give Tumblebooks a look. TumbleBooks is a collection of animated talking books. The easiest way to access Tumblebooks is from the library webpage The Tumblebooks icon is on the left side of the page. On the upper left hand corner of the Tumblebook site you can search by reading level and even language - there are a couple books in Chinese and Russian, but quite a few in Spanish and French. Tumblebooks is available on your mobile devices including the Ipad - from the drop down menu at the top center, choose Mobile. This is quite an amazing resource, my granddaughters have thoroughly enjoyed it and the program has provided worn out grandparents a nice respite. If you need any help navigating the site, email me or give me a call at the library.
