Happy Birthday, Spiderman! Fifty four years ago today (August 1, 1962), Spiderman premiered in Marvel Comics. The ever popular Spiderman is widely available here in the Children's Department.
Summer can be a time of personal renewal and transformation.
Happy Birthday, National Parks!
What has no heart, no lungs, no spine and no brain? If you answered "My brother/sister!" you are wrong (and being a little bit mean)! Correct answer is jellyfish. We have 5 real live jellyfish in the department thanks to Brandon Rutherford, a teacher at Stratton Elementary School. They will be staying with us for the whole summer. They are on the children's question desk (in tanks of course, not flopping around on the desktop) along with all kinds of information about jellyfish. They have been very popular (most common question... "Are those REAL?!") and are very interesting to watch.
Summer is here - maybe a bit too much summer, with temperatures in the 90s and humidity making us almost whistful for cold flakes of midwest snow. (Almost, but not quite.)
