Macmillan, one of the world's largest publishing companies, no longer supports your right to get the books you want, when you want, from your local public library. Beginning November 1, they plan to limit each library to ONE COPY of new e-books for the first two months of release. Libraries--and only libraries--will be banned from buying the new e-books that you want to read. This unprecedented embargo hurts library patrons. Visit eBooksForAll.orgto sign the petition. Post about it on social media. Share with friends and family, and fellow readers. Tell Macmillan that you want to keep your right to read!
We invite you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she begins kindergarten. The concept is simple, but the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books!) before your child starts kindergarten. After reading 100 books come in to receive a tote bag; the perfect accessory to carry your books home from the library! Sign up is easy, just stop by the Children’s Library service desk. Made possible by The Donald & Barbara Zucker Family Foundation.
