Wild Pets, Ramona, Henry and Archie!

Hello Friends! More National Geographic just arrived! I've stocked Skookum up with a bunch for your enjoyment over the holidays. Thank you Lorraine and Ambrose for the donation! As I've mentioned before, National Geographic issues are great for student papers, poster board reports, and even art projects. I love taking them on car trips or on flights. I never have to worry about a charger or electrical outlet to read the material. I'm looking forward to perusing the issues on brain science, black holes, and the food revolution.

For the kids, I've also included a few books by one my favourite authors Beverly Cleary! We've got The Mouse and the Motorcycle, Ramona and Her Father, Henry and Beezus, and the classic Beezus and Ramona.

And for you Archie diehards...more comics!

Hope you have a fantastic holiday! See you in 2015!

Fantastic Mr. Fox, Dinofours, Let's Count, & The Runaway Bunny

Hello Friends! I want to thank Maureen, Donna, and our other visitors for their donations to Skookum over the past month. We had a box load of Danielle Steel and Catherine Coulter books donated that filled our library to the rim. As a result, our book selection appealed more to adults. This afternoon while checking Skookum I found this little note stating that we needed more kid's books:

You are absolutely right my friend! So, I have stocked the library with more kid's books that I hope you will enjoy!

I have also added my last set of Archie comics. The comics go quite fast so come by soon if you would like to check them out.

In addition, take a peek in our green pail where you will find a stocking of festive pencils and activity pads that have games and more for you to enjoy during your break.

Cheers and Happy Holidays!
