Celebrating the Freedom to Read: Like many libraries throughout the country, we are celebrating the Freedom to Read during the month of September.  This week, we are featuring Katie Bosley, our Youth Services staff, pictured reading one of her favorite banned books, “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.”

Written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Grimmell, they are horror stories about urban legends in their creepiest form. They were banned for being satanic in nature and too disturbing for children to read, but most children find them perfect selections for Halloween and sleepovers!

Sept-3-T-Library-1As seen on TV: Masterpiece Theater on PBS is now airing new episodes of “Foyle’s War.”  If you want to catch up on this series, we have many available on DVD.  Louise Penny’s novel “Still Life” was recently shown on Canadian television as a made for TV movie.  We have a copy of this book, as well as her latest in the Inspector Gamache series, “How the Light Gets In.”
