  • Like adults, children have a wide range of preferences when it comes to books. But also like adults, a book or book series sometimes becomes a craze.

    Kids’ picks range from the classics to hit series. In between are books feeding specific interests, from princesses and trucks to vampires and athletes, area library staffers said.

    Movies often bump a book to the top of the must-read list.

    Hello, this week we are on fall break. I hope everyone is fine and having a good week off. There is not much going on and not much to write about.

    FALL. Fall is here and the weather is coming on and setting in for winter. The leaves are changing and the wind is getting that little bite of a chill in it. When I was a little girl, my mother always would say she could breathe better in cold weather. Now that I am getting older, I understand what she was talking about.
