The Missouri Department of Conservation offers free subscriptions to Missouri residents of Xplor Magazine. The magazine is a companion to their website where children can visit to see videos, listen to nature sounds, look at photos, read nature trivia, and much more. Xplor is geared for an older reader (4th grade), but eye-catching photos of nature will give younger children plenty to talk about. The magazine is published bi-monthly.
Most people like animals in some way. Some of the most common household pets are cats, dogs, fish, gerbils, hamsters and birds.
Some people just like to look at animals or don't have time or patience to raise them, so they like going to a zoo or to cat, dog or bird shows. I have been to a few cat and dog shows, and I'm surprised how the animals are so calm about being combed multiple times before their show debut. My cat could not stand to be combed even 15 seconds.

It’s amazing what you can find just by checking out a magazine from your library.
Recently, I was browsing through the Midwest Living and ran across an article about a 10K ski event across Chequamegon Bay, Wisconsin to raise money for their local library. The 10K event is called "Books Across the Bay." The track is lined with 1,000 luminaries, and the skiers are greeted at the finish line with hot chocolate, bonfires, chili, and cheering crowds.
Magazines are just one of the many great things that the library has to offer. Here at the Blue Springs North Branch, we’ve acquired some new magazines for 2012. We try to cover a wide range of topics that will hopefully appeal to a lot of people. Some of our new additions are:
