Fall is right around the corner, and children will soon be starting school! Preschoolers may watch with envy as older siblings leave for class. Now, with the help of the Jackson District Library, you can give your preschoolers something to do too! Bring your little ones to storytime and watch their imaginations soar.

Make sure you come by and check out (no pun intended) some of books here at the Eastern Branch. You'll find some interesting displays and a regular Author A Week feature that we also display. Currently, we have books by mystery author Margaret Truman featured. As the daughter of President Harry S. Truman, she is well-acquainted with the Washington political landscape that most of her books revolve around.
We are going on a road trip next week-end and I like to take Audio books when we travel. As I was looking for some that the whole family might like, I was reminded of some that we listened to when my daughter was younger (between the ages of 4 and 11)., and thought you might like some of them too.
A few weeks ago, I ran across a blog that set up a “challenge” I was too late to get on the challenge, but it sounded like fun so I thought we could try it here.
Participants pick 5 books that they would recommend to someone else, that you identified with or that tell something about you. You may but don’t have to tell us why you chose a book for your list. It can be any reading level. Then you pick 5 books from other people’s lists to read.
