the New & the Old

The new year is already 1/12 over. We’re adjusting to Barbara's shorter hours. The January rains came and the basement stayed dry - one of the hoped for benefits of the west side ramp and parking area renovations. End of the year reports are still in the works though the clerk treasurer is all done. The magazine list is here and ready for your recommendations. The Flying Circus of Physics was on the shelf when Jearl Walker talked at OWU but the Wanda Brunstetter books have not yet arrived. (soon) And we are all older.

A new pet, a large soft and cuddly jaguar with claws even, has a home in the children’s room. Thanks to thrifty shopper Karen.

The tractor calendar is back. The Delaware NAPA store has again provided our patrons with pictures to enjoy through the year.

The Caldecott and Newbery award winners were announced Jan. 22. The Caldecott best illustrated book winner is Flotsam by David Wiesner and it is available. Wiesner is a third time winner. The Newbery outstanding children’s literature is The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron. That needs to be ordered and there will undoubtedly be a wait. There were three Newbery honor awards and two Caldecott honors. The library does not have any of the honor books. Apparently we would have picked other winners. It would be interesting to read more on the judging and why the awards were made. And always interesting that adults decide.
