Happy New Year everyone! As we commit to making changes to better our own lives during the next year, our thoughts can turn to those of community betterment and making the world better for people less fortunate. This was the message of Martin Luther King Jr.

Halloween is a favorite of the staff at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library. Luckily, the library will be open until 9 p.m. on Monday, October 31, so please come celebrate with us between school and trick-or-treating. We will be passing out treats, and will have crafts, spooky stories and face painting for all ages from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Come in costume, so we can see how cute you are!Also, bring your carved pumpkins. We will display them behind our front circulation desk, and a prize will be awarded for the best pumpkin.
We here at Shaw Library hope you are having a super summer, and that you took the time to enjoy books with your little one during the break. Children who read over the summer not only maintain their reading levels, but learn to read for enjoyment. Now is the time to bring your child in to pick a out a book of their choosing, before homework starts to encroach on precious free time. The freedom to follow their own interests and tastes on books is such a powerful motivator, leading to a lifetime of reading.
