Marcus Pfister was born (and still lives) in Bern, Switzerland. Published in 1992, his Rainbow Fish series of books have been translated into more than 80 languages (including English, lucky us!) and have sold over 15 million copies worldwide!

Holiday ‘Chat, Chill and Cake”

If anyone is looking for something to do during the Pfingsten holiday I will be hosting a ‘Chat, Chill and Cake” on Tuesday the 22nd May from 3pm. There will not be any planned activities for the children and it is aimed at school aged children and their parents, who are only able to visit the library during school holidays, although everyone is welcome. Drinks will be supplied by the library so make sure you bring small change, and I will be providing the cake. You don’t need to sign up in advance, but having a rough idea of numbers would help me plan the baking.

CEL will be open for the return and borrowing of books during this event from 15:00-17:00

April’s Spotlight is on Beverly Cleary

Beverly Cleary is an American author best known for her books starring Henry Huggins and Beezus and Ramona Quimby. Before she was a writer, Cleary was a children’s librarian who made it her mission to help kids find books they loved to read. Her books have been published in over 25 different languages! Publisher Harper Collins celebrates April 12, Cleary’s birthday, as Drop Everything and Read day(DeaR). CEL owns many of Beverly Cleary’s books, come check one out today!

March Spotlight is on Dr. Seuss

Of course, we all know Dr. Seuss, beloved American author of books like “The Cat and the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham”, but March 2 is Dr. Seuss’s birthday, so in honor of him here are some Seussical fun facts:
– Dr. Seuss’ real name is Theodore Geisel
– He knows we’re all pronouncing his name wrong but thought it beneficial to sound similar to Mother Goose
– Before becoming a famous children’s author, he drew ads for companies like GE and NBC
-He won a special Pulitzer Prize in 1984 for “contribution over nearly half a century to the education and enjoyment of America’s children and their parents”.
Come check out one of his books at the library!

February’s Spotlight is on Dinosaurs

What’s your favorite dinosaur? We have lots of dinosaur books here, both fiction and non-fiction. If you want to learn about dinosaurs, try “The Best-Ever Book of Dinosaurs” held in the 560s in non-fiction. If you want a story featuring dinosaurs, try “I’m Tryannosaurus”, in the picture books. Maybe you want to draw dinosaurs? Try “Draw 50 Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Animals” in the 760s, or maybe you’d like to do the Dinosaur Jigsaw Puzzle. There’s really something for every dinosaur lover, and every dinosaur lover to be. Come check one out at the library!
