What's on our mind this week

Hi, everyone! 

Here are the hot topics in the Children's Department this week:

1. Kindle-compatible.  Be sure to ask us about our ebooks. They now work with Kindle
2. Registered Toddler Time (Yes, it's a switch. But it IS a hot topic!). Registration for the November session begins Monday, October 31 at 11 a.m. We're very sorry, but we can't accept chocolate to sneak your child into this hot program :)
3. October Programs. Registration for many of our October programs is open. Please check our calendar for details.

Have a great, sunny Monday.
