Santa has been watching to see who has been naughty or nice. He is anxiously awaiting Christmas wish lists from children! Youngsters may mail their holiday letters to Santa from the “North Pole Mailbox” located by the elevator in the Children’s Department. Santa promises to write back to each child if their name and address are included with their letter.

Due to Santa’s busy schedule, all letters must be received by Tuesday, December 17. This will give him plenty of time to respond and pack his sleigh for Christmas Eve deliveries.


P.S. Be Eleven is Rita Williams-Garcia’s follow-up to her widely acclaimed and award-winning novel One Crazy Summer. Look for both of these great titles in our collection.  


Set in 1871, One Came Home by Amy Timberlake is the story of Georgie, a young sharpshooter who searches for the truth when her sister goes missing.


Oliver And His Alligator written and illustrated by Paul Schmid is a fun tale of Oliver’s first day at school.


In the hilarious The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers, each color of crayon writes a protest letter to Duncan demanding better use of their talents.


Play, Louis, Play by Muriel Harris Weinstein, a biographical chapter book about Louis Armstrong as told by his horn, is a great way to introduce children to this American treasure.


On Thursday, July 18, the library will hold its Children’s Summer Reading Club Finale from  10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Auburn Outdoor Theater.* Terrin Thomas (Miss Indiana) will be there, as will many other community groups and organizations, to help us celebrate kids reading. Bring your family and friends and join us for fun and games.


*In case of bad weather, this event will be held at Middaugh Hall.
