Great Summer Read

Toad Rage by Morris Gleitzman

Book Image - Toad Rage
Reading a book about toads is all the rage right now, so it's the perfect time to read Toad Rage.  It's about one lowly toad's adventures "down under."  After seeing one-too-many relatives flattened by Mack trucks, Limpy, the hero toad of the story, embarks on a mission to improve toad-human relations.  Reading this book will allow you to pick up some interesting Australian slang.  When you finish it, all you'll want to say is, "Stack me!  I really enjoyed this book!"  Good for ages 7-9, amusing for all.  There are two sequels: Toad Heaven and Toad Away.

Did you paint the River Thames at your library?

London is celebrating the Thames River this year and many of you visited your local library during March Break to help paint pictures of the River. Here are the finished pictures, put together so you can watch the seasons change! Make sure you have the sound turned on.

Kids First Day - Friday, April 18th

Drop in to any Library location and take part in our River Quest:

Help us "Celebrate the Thames 2008" by finding hidden plants and animals in the Library.  While you learn about each one, you will get a clue to help you on your quest to solve the mystery puzzle.

Kids First Day is a way for kids and their families to join Investing in Children and its community partners to celebrate the wonderful opportunities that London has to offer for children and to recognize the people, businesses and organizations that make them possible.

Pick up your passport and make the Library one of the places you visit on Kids First Day.  If children visit at least three partner locations, they can enter their passport into a draw to win one of the many great prizes donated by the community.  All you need to do is pick up a passport at your first partner location, and drop it off at the last location you visit.
