Being a cat fan, I had to read James Bowen's Book, A Street Cat Named Bob and How He Saved My Life. Dog fans might like it too because it shows what a difference having an animal in our lives can make.
Bob helps James to quit his drug habit and quit living on the streets of London. James found Bob hungry, dirty and generally in bad shape while he was performing as a busker (street musician).

Long ago, St. Patrick's day began as a religious holiday that celebrated the arrival of Saint Patrick, who brought Christianity to Ireland. Today, it is celebrated in many parts of the world in the spirit of Irish heritage, culture and good luck! St. Patrick's Day celebrations of today include parades, feasts, Irish folklore and wearing the color green!
We will celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the Children's Room on the second floor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library on March 15 at 11 a.m. during our weekly Family Fun Time.
"How to Train Your Dragon"

Dear LBPH Kids,
How to Train Your Dragon is our Adaptive Services Division children’s movie recommendation for March 2014.
In this movie, “Hiccup is a Viking teenager who aspires to hunt dragons, but doesn't exactly fit in with his tribe's longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. His world gets turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.”

Say this name with me: Myfanwy Thomas. The first name is mostly pronounced like Tiffany but with an M.
Know who she is? No?
Neither does she.
Upon waking up in a park, surrounded by dead people all adorned in rubber gloves, notes from her pre-amnesia self give her the option of either taking the wealth she has stockpiled and disappearing from the UK to some Caribbean island to live an idyllic life or she can choose to tackle the mystery of who obliterated her prior consciousness and seemingly wants her dead.

From hegdehogs to potbelly pigs to parakeets to St. Bernards, family pets come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, President Calvin Coolidge had a pet raccoon named Rebecca who lived in the White House.
We love our pets. During a recent Family Fun Time at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library we celebrated pets by reading books, dancing, singing songs, and making crafts. Check these pet books out!
