Today is World Book Night!
Each year, 30- 35 books are chosen by an independent panel of librarians and booksellers. The authors of the books waive their royalties and the publishers agree to pay the costs of producing the specially-printed World Book Night U.S. editions. After the book titles are announced, members of the public apply to personally hand out 20 copies of a particular title in their community.
And guess what - our Children's Librarian applied and received 20 copies of "Hoot" by Carl Hiassen!
Want a copy of the book? Stop by the Reference Desk today! She will be giving away 10 copies of her books here at the Brown Deer Library!
Random Fact of the Day: America has a national tree, and it's all thanks to Arbor Day! In 2004, the National Arbor Day Foundation hosted a vote on its website for a national tree. The winner pulled ahead early and never flagged: The oak tree!
Look at all the fantastic Culver's coloring sheets we've gotten back recently!
Have you done one yet? Kids aged 11 and under just need to come to the reference desk to get their coloring sheet. They then just need to draw something from their favorite book, like a character or a scene. Then bring it back, and we'll give them a coupon for a FREE scoop of Custard from Culver's!!!
