Happy Holidays from Your Friends at PLS

Happy Holidays! All hometown libraries will close at 6 pm on December 23 and will be closed all day on December 24 and 25. We will reopen for regular hours on December 26. Have a great holiday and check out these winter books to share with your family!

Winter by Sian Smith

What do animals do in winter? Read this book to find out what happens in winter. Books in this series introduce children to the four seasons. Each book uses simple, repetitive text to teach children basic vocabulary, and includes stunning photographs to show the changes that take place during each season. In Winter, children learn about typical winter activities and changes in the natural world.
