Meg and Ash are a pair of magpies who are building a nest for their perfect eggs. Although they begin their nest construction using the usual mud, sticks and grass, Meg and Ash are soon convinced that their nest doesn't have enough stuff and begin to seek out more things to collect and add to an ever-growing pile. From cuckoo clocks to mops and socks, a stroller and even a car - their need for stuff doesn't seems endless. Until - crash! - the inevitable happens... - from Goodreads

New in Town by Kevin Cornell

One fine morning, the people of Puddletrunk wake up to find their bridge has collapsed. They are not surprised. After all, termites have destroyed the last 200 or so bridges. Luckily, the people of Puddletrunk have a bridge-building expert in their town: the fabulous Mortimer Gulch, who will gladly rebuild their bridge for a pretty penny. But when a newcomer to Puddletrunk does not want to pay for the repairs, Mortimer is displeased. To make matters worse, this unusual foreigner has some innovative ideas that threaten to upend Mortimer Gulch's entire business . . .

Here is a whimsical yet timely picture book allegory about what new people with new ideas can bring to communities.

Three tiny ducks. One straight line.
New happy flock. All feeling fine.

Until, that is, the last ducking sinks when she should swim. Let's try that again . . . and again and again. All this sinking is ruining the rhyme!

Little ones will love following the antics of these adorable ducklings, and parents will enjoy the way the book goes off the rails halfway through. Everyone will laugh at the tiny ducky's string of failures and cheer when it comes up with the best solution of all. - from Goodreads

Meet Fern! She’s a smart, creative unicorn who prefers building robots and coding software to jumping through shimmering rainbows and splashing in majestic waterfalls. Even though Fern is a good friend and always willing to help others, the other unicorns tease her and call her a nerdycorn.

One day, Fern has had enough and decides to stop fixing her friends’ broken things. But then the confetti machine, the rainbow synthesizer, and the starlight bedazzler all go haywire during the biggest Sparkle Dance Party of the year! Fern can certainly fix them… but will she?

Tou-Can't!: A Little Sister Story by Brandon Todd

All one little toucan wants is to be big like her sister, and to get to do all the things her big sister can do. Tie her own shoes? She tou-can't. Make her own breakfast? She tou-can't! Read her own books? She tou-can't, tou-can't, tou-can't!!!

But when her big sister gets a cold and needs some help, the tables are turned, and our little bird sister learns just how helpful she can actually be.

In this sweet and playful sister story, it's the little things that matter the most.

Praise for Tou-Can't:

"Sisterly affection and admiration sweetly serves to strengthen the rapport between siblings." --Kirkus Reviews

Don't forget about the Reel Reader tonight! Join us for dinner and a movie at 6:00pm tonight, as we continue our Reel Readers series. Every Day is based on David Levithan's book with the same name.
Every Day tells the story of Rhiannon, a 16-year old girl who falls in love with a mysterious soul named "A" who inhabits a different body every day. Feeling an unmatched connection, Rhiannon and A work each day to find each other, not knowing what or who the next day will bring. The more the two fall in love, the more the realities of loving someone who is a different person every 24 hours takes a toll, leaving Rhiannon and "A" to face the hardest decision either has ever had to make. Bring your brown bag dinner. Seating is limited. #ReadFarmington

What determines the low price of air tickets? Price primarily depends on the day of the flight, the closer it is, the higher the price will be, therefore, if you want cheap, book in advance. Planning a trip with families ... the more tickets the lower the price. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.cheapairlinetickets

Does Your Library Have a Library Telescope Program? A Library Telescope is a telescope owned by a library that can be borrowed just like a book. Usually it’s a modified Orion 4.5” StarBlast Reflector Telescope. What better way to bring astronomy to the youth of today, than to give them access to a quality telescope? Having a parent, or other adult, borrow the telescope and amaze a child with views of the Moon or a planet, could make a lasting impression. Maybe even lead to a career in astronomy or some other science. Hundreds of libraries across the US have Library Telescope Programs that have been remarkably successful. A library can get a telescope program going for under $400. The telescope is modified in various ways so it is less likely to be damaged and parts are less likely to be lost. The world would be a better place if every library had a Library Telescope Program! Shouldn’t your library have a Library Telescope Program? For more information see page: Library Telescopes.
We were at the library yesterday, Wed, and a 'strange' alarm went off. The building was evacuated. What caused it?
