Books Turned into Movies

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick was released last week. The movie has been getting great reviews. Pick up a copy of the book at the library, and read it before you go see the movie. The book has fantastic illustrations to go with the story. See if Martin Scorsese did the book justice. Let us know what you think.

Lost and Found

A blue gift bag was found at the library this past summer. Inside was a bunch of old pictures. Maybe someone was working on a scrapbook at the library and forgot the photos. Take a look at the pictures and see if you know who these belong to. I am sure someone would love to get these back!

Library Book Care

Poor Usborne First Picture Action Rhymes! I came upon this in the children's room while alphabetizing board books. Due to the rainy season we've been having, it's a good reminder to always keep library books dry. It's also a good reason why we still say no drinks in the library. I couldn't believe how much mold was on this book! Needless to say, it has been discarded.

The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb

The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb was written by Melanie Benjamin. The book is based on the real Mrs. Tom Thumb, Mercy Lavinia “Vinnie” Bump. Who grew up right here in Massachusetts. The story is about Vinnie's life before, and during her time with P.T. Barnum. During a time when women, especially a small women was expected to stay hidden at home for their own protection from the world. Vinnie chooses her own fate and leaves the safety and comfort of her home. Her travels take her first to a "freak show" where she is taught a hard lesson about the world around her. She is finally partnered with P.T. Barnum and together they begin their planning of her celebrity. What ensues is a lasting friendship and one of the most followed events of its time. Her wedding to Tom Thumb. The book was a good read, and kept me interested right up to the end. If you see a copy at the library be sure to grab it!
