The children's room at ELPL has been particularly bright and cheerful this January thanks to gorgeous art created by the students at Stepping Stones Montessori. If you are in need of some color stop by and visit the exhibit.
The library will be closing at 4pm, on Sunday, January 5, 2014. The library is closing early due to worsening weather conditions. Check elpl.org for updates on possible closures tomorrow, Monday, January 6, 2014.
I am fascinated by animal stories involving unlikely duos, such as friendships between chimps and tigers, monkeys and birds, pigs and just about any other animal. This book includes captivating photographs from all over the world showing how nature can really work in amazing ways. My favorite friendship is the one between an old orangutan, who had lost her mate, and a stray tabby cat. They became instant friends and lived side by side for four years. This is truly a heartwarming book of friendship and love.
