In the video, he teaches the children the "Rabbit Dance."

Wiinchester Wii Wiinter Olympiics 2014

In case you hadn't noticed, not all the action and excitement is in Sochi. In a hard fought battle, P.J. of Winchester won the Gold Medal in our first Winter Olympics Wii Snowboarding competition. Contending against 15 other athletes from all over Winchester, P.J. "nollied" his way to the top, finally defeating runner-up Nicole in a fiercely competitive battle. Collapsing over the finish line, P.J. breathlessly gave credit to all the library books he has read for his victory.

We'd like to thank everyone who participated in this fun event. Keep your eyes open for more Wii competitions. Maybe there's a MarioKart victory in your future!

Everyone loves Pattycake Place! If you have a child 2 years old or under stop by and see us on Thursday mornings at 10am. We sing, read, play and have a great time!


Shifty Librarians

As you may already have noticed, we've made some shelving changes, and we think it will make finding things even easier. So take a deep breath, fasten your seatbelts, and hold on.for a whirlwind tour:

  1. Paperback fiction has now been filed alongside the hardback versions, so you'll no longer have to search two different locations to find books by your favorite authors.
  2. DVDs are now shelved where the paperbacks used to be, on the spinning racks. Music cds and book-with-cd packs have been consolidated with audiobooks (where the DVDs used to be).
  3. Illustrated fiction (picture books with more sophisticated themes for older children) have been moved to the Picture Book room, and new picture books are now displayed on the shelves over the other picture books.

It may be a little confusing at first, but we think that in long run it will make everyone's life easier. Until then, as always, please feel free to ask us for help.
