Butterflies Are Here!

Two sets of butterfly larvae has arrived at the Library and are installed in my office window. The first group has already spun cocoons! It is amazing to watch how much the caterpillars grow in just one day!!!

It will be about a week or so before we have live Painted Lady butterflies in our habitat. We will keep them on display for 3 - 4 days before releasing them into the wild to make more butterflies.

Be sure to stop by the library often to see this truly wonderous evolution! This is our way of welcoming spring to Lincoln.

Two New Books

For those patrons who love the "I Spy" series, we have added a new book to the collection from Kidslabel: Spot 7 Toys. It's fun and tough! Find it under J/793.7/TOY.

For those readers craving something after the "Twilight" series, take a look at Kelly Armstrong's The Summoning and The Awakening. Both are in our young adult collection.

Summer Reading Program Planning for Teens

It is time once again to start looking at the Teen Summer Reading Program. We have scheduled a Youth Advisory Council meeting for Wednesday, May 13 (@3:30) after school in the Community Room of the Annex. Any tweens and teens who would like to share ideas for activities are welcome to attend. Remember, this program is only as successful as the ideas and work you as teens put into it. I am only here to help make your plans work.

We are fortunate enough to have a great teen grand prize drawing for reading this summer. We need input on who will be eligible to win. Another idea that came out of our last planning meeting was a video contest promoting the Library. Details on this contest need to be worked on at the meeting. have other ideas? We want to hear them! Can't be at the meeting? Stop by and see me. I will present them at the meeting for you.
