Calendar, carpet, and a movie (or two)!

Our February calendar is now available!  Just click on the Calendar tab to see what’s going on this month at the MCPL for children and tweens.  One item to note is that our Toddler Tales Valentine’s Day party has been moved from February 9th and will now be held the following Wednesday, February 16th.  As the library’s schedule has been somewhat irregular due to remodeling and weather issues, I felt extra time was needed in order to get the word out about upcoming February events.  As always, please be aware that if Marion County Public Schools are not in session due to poor weather conditions then all programming (Children, Tween, Teen, and Adult) will be canceled for that day.

If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the library in the last few weeks, we invite you to check out our new look!  New carpet and a slightly new floor plan (among other things) have freshened up our look…we love it, and we hope you will too!

Finally, it’s always exciting to hear that a movie is being based on a beloved book, especially a children’s book!  The video below is the official movie trailer for the upcoming March 2011 Disney movie release “Mars Needs Moms”, which is based on the wonderful children’s book by Berkeley Breathed…enjoy!

 

Oooooo…another!! I’ve edited this post to include an additional movie trailer.  “Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  Rodrick Rules” will be released in theater’s in March.  This movie is based on the 2nd book in the awesome and wildly popular “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series.  If you’re not familiar with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series…well, I’m not sure what to say except…(warning: upcoming shameless plug!) run to your nearest library!

 

 

November is Family Literacy Month

Our children’s programming is off to a running start this month!  Click on the Calendar or Programs and Events links to view the Children’s Programming calendar for November.  We’ll be participating in the county-wide Reading Celebration at Marion County High School on Nov. 16th at 6:00 p.m., hosting a magical HPrty (Harry Potter Party) on the 18th at 5:30 p.m., and much more!  Also, we’d like to remind everyone that links of all sorts are added regularly to our blog!  There’s something to interest everyone…kids, tweens, parents, and even educators!  (By the way, if you have a favorite literacy, educational, local, or just-for-fun web site feel free to contact us and let us know, we’d love to hear from you!  Our contact information can be found under the Information and Hours page.)
