Book Talk by Betty —

There is a photograph in my hallway of the view from the top of Monadnock. But if I am going to climb a mountain it will be through the written word. So when a patron suggested “Following Atticus” by Tom Ryan about a guy and his dog climbing mountains in New Hampshire, I purchased the book for the library.  I couldn’t resist the cute dog on the cover, so took the book home to read. Well, I followed Tom and Atticus up every one of the 48 four-thousand foot mountains in New Hampshire which they have now climbed a number of times. How the two face life’s challenges both on and off the mountain is a great read for the New Year.

If walking in a winter wonderland had you less than excited, step into the magic and warmth of an imaginary two-week getaway. A little reading each day will take you places many of us only dream about. So on those cold mornings or dark evenings let the library light your way to an adventure that is only a chapter away.

After the holidays are over, remember that the Dublin Public Library story time can help fill that void that some children (and parents) feel after the celebrating is over. Enjoy a story, craft, and snack and then encourage your child to choose a few books to take home. We have a selection of children’s DVDs as well.

On Wednesday mornings, from 9:30 to 10:30 am, Story Time topics will be:

January 4 – Oh Baby it is Cold Outside! Help us build an indoor igloo.

January 11 – Snowflakes: Learn to fold and cut beautiful patterns.

January 18 – Where did all the animals go? Shhh, the animals in the library are sleeping.

January 25 – Color Me Happy! Enough white already, let’s paint with colors.

Check our new display of featured authors of the month. We have some biographies as well as a selection of their books.
