Quote for the Day

Today we added a new biography to our children's shelves, Abe's Honest Words: The Life of Abraham Lincoln, by Doreen Rappaport. It's a beautiful book, and I just love this quote:


"The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who'll git me a book I ain't read." ~A. Lincoln

Happy Anniversary, Eric Carle!

March 20th is the 40th anniversary of Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar, long a favorite of our Story Hour children. Click here for a video of Carle discussing how he came to write the book, the processes he used, and a bit of his philosophy.

New Officers Serving Friends

After a well-attended and thoroughly delightful Irish presentation by Michele Kerr at their Books-Sandwiched-In yesterday, the Friends of the Sodus Free Library met for both their monthly and annual meetings. Newly serving are President Lynn Griffith, Treasurer Pauline Dodge, and Secretary Bette Bugni. Former President Kass Vande will temporarily fill the office of Vice President until a replacement can be found. If you're interested in joining this group, stop by the Library and pick up a membership brochure. We'd love to have you join us!
