Summer Reading Fun Continues in Forest

The storms didn't scare everyone away from our summer reading program today in Forest. We enjoyed Emily Baker from the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra as she shared fiddle music from around the world with us. At times we clapped along as the thunder drummed a beat for us outside. Next week we will continue our trip around the world at a special time. Our Scottish storyteller will be visiting us on June 28th at 5:30pm. See you there!

Minnie & Moo Books 'FLY' Off the Shelves

After a recent visit by Minnie & Moo (courtesy of the CMRLS puppet show), our shelves are empty of Minnie & Moo books. Young patrons returned yesterday requesting more Minnie & Moo adventures. Don't miss the CMRLS puppets this year at a library near you!

Inky the Clown came to the Pearl Public Library on Thursday night. We had a great time with Inky's jokes and magic tricks, and we even learned another language! We also gave out some great door prizes at the end including t-shirts, books, posters, and water bottles. Check out this schedule of events for the remainder of the program:

June 16 @ 6:00 pm-CMRLS Puppets

SRP Week 1 @ Forest Public Library

We began our trip around the world this summer in Scotland. What a treat to have bagpiper Zoe Brumfield at our library! We got to hear all about the history of bagpipes as well as the clothing she was wearing. Our weekly winner joined our bagpiper for a picture before she left. We will be drawing for a T-shirt every week from all the children in attendance. Plus all the names will continue to go in the pot for our candy jar that we'll be giving away at the end of the summer. If you want to hear the bagpipes too, reserve one of these bagpipe CDS and have it sent to your local library.
