Mad Science is making an appearance at the MCPL Weston Branch on Tuesday, July 20 at 10:00am. Discover how butterflies begin life as caterpillars, how butterflies eat, and many other fun and fascinating butterfly facts. After the program, visit Weston’s own butterfly garden. Located north of the West Platte School Track, the garden was created by the 2nd graders at West Platte Elementary school.
Is your child a fan of Dora and Diego? Is she obsessed with bunnies? Does he love books about tractors?
Next time you visit the Blue Springs South branch, take a look at our book bundles in the Children's section. A book bundle is a small collection of four or five books with the same topic, characters, or authors, packaged together and ready for check out. Designed to make it easy to find several children’s books on a singular interest, these bundles are refreshed with various themes regularly.
What are you doing at the library today? Working! I am putting books on hold to fill Teacher Assistant requests. We can help teachers supplement their classroom books with items from our library system.
How long have you worked at the library? I have worked here 5 ½ years. I started as a sub and now am working half-time.
What is the best part of your job? Working with the customers and the staff.
I posed this question to the staff at the Grandview Branch recently. "What book do you go back and read again and again and why do you like it? " Our staff is split about 50/50 between those of us who re-read books and those of us who do not. I was actually a little surprised how many of us do read books more than once. Not surprisingly, our answers were as varied as our staff.
