New Books

Next time you're in the Children's Department check out our new fiction, nonfiction, and picture books. If the new title you're anxiously waiting for is not in, make sure you stop by the desk and put it on hold. 

Meet my friend Muzzy!

If you want to learn a new language, then you need to check out Muzzy. This immersion-based language system offers 10 different languages for you to explore. Muzzy has reading and writing components and native speakers are used in the videos. Since I'm a Russian Tortoise, I must tell you one of the langauges you can learn is Russian.
