FEBRUARY'S WEBSITE

Wonderopolis

Wonderopolis is a website sponsored by the National Center for Family Literacy that encourages families to learn together.  Check out the "Wonder of the Day" or search through a list of topics to find fun facts (art, nature, sports,..).  Each curiosity is presented using a question, such as:

What is a butte?   

Can you count with letters?       

Why are they called Daddy longlegs?   

What is a masa?

Where Did the Audiobooks Go?

 

All the Fiction Audiobooks including mysteries and science fiction have been moved to the end of the Large Print collection on the main floor of the adult area.  All Nonfiction Audiobooks are still in the same location.  Playaways now face the entrance to the adult area of the library.  Please ask for assistance in locating these collections.  Placing our Fiction Audiobooks in the Large Print area allows more room for your favorite authors and titles. As an added bonus, the Romance Paperbacks are now where the Audiobooks used to be.  Just in time for Valentine's Day.

What's Cooking?: Happy Lunar New Year 4011!

Chinese New Year is the most celebrated holiday in many Asian countries where shops are closed for two weeks to a month. Created for the purpose of counting a 12-year cycle in the Chinese calendar, each year is represented by twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac:  rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.   This Chinese Lunar New Year on February 10 is the Year of the Water Snake. Throughout Asia and Chinatowns in the western nations, the streets are lined with people watching the festive parades with lions and dragons dancing to the beating of heavy drums and clanging cymbals, and "embraced" with a relentless spray of firecrackers to scare away malevolent spirits from spoiling the chance of a prosperous and hopeful year.
