New books for the new year! This week we are processing nearly 100 new children's books purchased with the help of a grant from the Pilcrow Foundation! We are thrilled that the Pilcrow Foundation which is based in Oregon awarded the Royalton Memorial Library their "Children's Book Project Grant." Library Director Marianne Pysarchyk selected the books for purchase. An additional 24 math and science books were given as a generous donation from Mr. Berenson and Mrs. Ackerman of Colorado. All the books will be ready for checkout by the end of this week! Look for them on the NEW book shelves in the children's room!

Join us for a screening of this imaginiative book-turned-movie! Boss Baby is based on the 32-page picture book written by award-winning author and illustrator Marla Frazee.

DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.
