Young People’s Movie for Thursday, Jan. 24: Join your friends at 3:15 pm on Thursday for a special showing of an animate fantasy film about boy and his dog. The film is loosely based on the movie “Frankenstein.” Free popcorn!
Take your Child to the Library Day: Mark your calendars! Saturday, February is the 2nd annual Take your Child to the Library Day. Last year, more than 120 libraries in 20 states and Canada participated in this event and we hope that you and your children will be joining us that day at Pierson.
Did you leave something behind the last time you visited the Library? Our lost & found box is overflowing! If you are missing a sweater, a glove, a hat or some other item, stop by the Circulation Desk to see if we’ve found it. Items not reclaimed by Jan. 31 will be donated to Goodwill.
Recent Arrivals at Pierson: Did you know we have 14 of the 16 hardcover fiction and 15 of the 16 hardcover nonfiction best sellers listed in The New York Times BookReview? If the inauguration reminded you of past Presidents, you may want to take a look at “Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power” by Jon Meacham. Perhaps seeing Justice Sotomayor swear in the Vice President reminded you that she has a new book out. We have it! You can find both of these in the nonfiction section of the special shelves for our newest books. For lighter reading, you may want to browse in the recent fiction section for James Patterson’s “Private: London” or James Grippando’s “Blood Money” or Susan Isaacs’ “Goldberg Variations.” You will find audio books there too. Some of the more popular recent arrivals are “Paris: A Love Story” and “The Twelve Tribes of Hattie.” We have just received many new DVDs including season 6 of 30 Rock, and the movies “Ted,” “Trouble with the Curve,” and “Loopers” in the adult section as well as “Frankenweenie,” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days” in the youth area.
If the book, the audio book or the DVD you want isn’t on the shelf, you may place a hold on it from your own computer by logging into our website (www.piersonlibrary.org) or by asking any Pierson staff person to do it for you. These winter nights are a great time to curl up with a good book or to watch a DVD.
