Out with the old, in with the new...Well, not literally!

I'm sure all of us remember classics like Ms Nelson is Missing, Green Eggs and Ham, The Foot Book, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and even the American Girl series. I, for a fact, grew up on these selections, I LIVED for these! But then again, everyone has their own taste.
The Children's department, located on the second floor of the Armstrong library, is a great place to bring your kids for books of all kinds! We are forever expanding our book selections to fit the needs of every patron. Each month we add new easy readers, juvenile fiction, and juvenile nonfiction books to our collection. These books, similar to the set up located downstairs for the new Adult Fiction books, have their own designated place in the library. They are swapped out each month to make way for newer, fresher reads.
You can also catch new books on the display shelves located on either side on the double doors leading into the children's department, and on the glass display right inside the doors. New books will not have a new sticker on them.
Another thing that the books here at our library offer is the AR level and points for each book. This bit of information is located on the inside of the book, most of the time in the right hand corner. This information is good for both the parent, who wants to insure that their child is fact reading on their level, and the child, who will want to read something fun and rack up those points! Remember, not all books are AR books!

I look forward to seeing you and your children in the Library soon!
