Big News! Our picture book section has reopened for browsing. Plus, we have a new system of organizing them that we hope will help kids browse through them more easily and independently. Now, books are organized by their topics instead of alphabetically by author’s last name. Books featuring high interest topics, like DINOSAURS, SCHOOL, and PETS are now all together in one place! Parents and educators will love the sections devoted to areas of child development and learning, like EMOTION and MATH! The “Topic” spine labels even feature easy to identify icons kids will recognize, even if they are not yet able to read. As with many changes, this one is sure to take a while to adjust to. If you need help figuring how to find a book on the shelf with our new system, check out the links to our infographics, which help explain how items can be found. You can also checkout our hint list, for frequently searched for topics. Found a Book in our catalog? Not sure How to read...

Coloring is more than being creative, it’s a very relaxing activity that has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety.
Each week we’ll be coloring a new mandala design, while also enjoying a good round of conversation. You can use the mandala design we’ve selected or download free designs of your choice from the link below.
You don’t have to have a degree in art to participate…just some paper and color pencils.

The roundup and relocation of 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry in the wake of the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor is one of the darkest blemishes on the Roosevelt record. This presentation explores the intent and consequences of Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066.
