Pearl Peanuts is starting!

It's school time again which means that we are beginning Pearl Peanuts! Pearl Peanuts meets every Wednesday at 4:00 pm at the Pearl Public Library. This program is designed for children in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. This year we are featuring some fun new programs! Our Kids in the Kitchen series will be featured at our first meeting, August 18th. We are also introducing a Kids in the Garden series. Children will also enjoy stories, crafts, and snacks!

Read It Before You See It!

Nine-year-old Beezus Quimby has her hands full with her little sister, Ramona. Sure, other people have little sisters that bother them sometimes, but is there anyone in the world like Ramona? Whether she's taking one bite out of every apple in a box or secretly inviting 15 other 4-year-olds to the house for a party, Ramona is always making trouble--and getting all the attention. Every big sister can relate to the trials and tribulations Beezus must endure. Old enough to be expected to take responsibility for her little sister, yet young enough to be mortified by every embarrassing plight the precocious preschooler gets them into, Beezus is constantly struggling with her mixed-up feelings about the exasperating Ramona. Read this classic story by Beverly Clearly before you see the movie starring Selena Gomez!

Ice Cream! Ice Cream!

Join the Pearl Public Library for a good, old-fashioned "Back to School Ice Cream Social" on Tuesday, August 17th @ 4:00 pm. This program is free and open to families of Pearl. Grab some ice cream and learn about new programs starting this fall at the Pearl Library. Also, members of the community can stop by and get a new library card. This is a great opportunity to socialize with other families of Pearl and to learn what the library can do for you and your family! We will also be giving away door prizes!
