Belle en route to Caldwell Public Library to "Make a Splash" ....

But, will the Beast be here as well?!

Who knows, but hope you can join us as we continue with our decade old (or young, depending on your point of view) and then some, tradition of "Family Fun Nights" during the Summer Reading Program. Hope to see you at 6:45 p.m. this evening for our Ice Cream Social - with our beautiful Princess Belle joining in the fun. She might even sing for us, so get here early! (And, as we continue to "Make a Splash" and "Make a Difference" please consider bringing some items for the Caldwell Food Pantry - may we suggest a jar of peanut butter and/or jelly, pasta and/or tomato sauce?)

"Make a Splash" and "Make a Difference" Book Group debuts tonight!

Have you always wanted your own book group? Okay, so "c'mon down" tonight to the library and join us as we Kick Off a book group designed just for you -- kids in 5th to 8th grade.
We can pick whatever you want - a book such as "Three Cups of Tea" - The Young Reader's Edition - or maybe a book suggested by a friend, or a teacher you really like. There are certainly enough books here - and we are open to anything (but you know that already!).
The summer has just begun, so, lets use this book group to "Make a Splash" AND "Make a Difference" - see you at 6:45 p.m.!

BOY, did we ever "Make A Splash" yesterday!

The summer reading program KICK OFF yesterday was FANTABULOUS! Thank you again to all of our friends at the Caldwell Community Center for a positively refreshing and fun and splash-filled pool party. And, thank you Mrs. Khost, Mrs. Walker, Ms. Reeve and our countless teen library assistants and volunteers who made the sign up go so "swimmingly" at the Library beforehand.
Now, must head out for "Art in the Afternoon" brought to us by Mrs. Stewart -- who just can't stay away from art, even when school is closed for the summer!
