One-Sit Reads

Tucked away in a corner of the Marguerite deAngeli Children’s Room sits a collection of stories that many library visitors might not know about. The collection is called one-sit reads, and contains everything from real-world, everyday stories to folklore and mythical tales told in longform, descriptive language and pictures. While unknown to many, these titles make a great transition tool for young readers.

Thankfulness & Spirit of Giving

 Hello, friends! It is almost time for Thanksgiving and I can’t wait for the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and of course pumpkin pie. As a young child, I couldn’t wait for the big meal, but what I remember most was the time spent with my family. We often would take turns stating what we were most thankful for from that particular year. Most of the time I probably said I was most thankful for my dog, or most thankful for a full tummy. But, the point was we always stopped to embrace the true purpose of this holiday.
