What's Happening Lately @ RML Kids

It's been a while since I've done an update of what's been going on the Children's Department so...

You may have seen one of two new 'houses' we have! This one is located near the window seating and is evolving into a place to store toys as well as a place for concept books! I've added some bins with books on subjects such as numbers, nature, and shapes. We'll change them out just like the other browsing bins.

We've also weeded and updated our Parenting Collection! There are some great new titles as well as newer versions of classics. You'll find books there on subjects ranging from baby food to dealing with teenagers, from art therapy to dealing with concussions. 

We also got a lot of new picture books in January. After the youth media awards were announced and the "Best of the Year" lists were done, I wanted to make sure we had all the top titles.
Finally, just a reminder that storytimes are in full swing! We have a great 'babies' group of 9-20 month-olds as well. Session II begins on March 7.

p.s. We have a fun 'Reading Bingo' challenge coming for March!
