The Camden Point Branch has a collection of "Book Bundles" that making finding books for your child quick and easy. We have bundled books by subject matter, main character, reading ability, etc. Right now we have bundles of Magic Tree House, Manners, Henry & Mudge, plus several others.

I can’t say that I enjoy gardening or any type of farming, except in the virtual world of Facebook’s Farmville. To be honest, I’ve even lost a few crops on Farmville. My idea of enjoying the summer bounty is going to my neighborhood Farmers’ Market on Saturday morning and selecting the fresh, homegrown fruits, and vegetables that hard-working local farmers offer throughout the growing season.
