Monday, January 28 is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!
Celebrate today by grabbing a piece of bubble wrap and popping a few bubbles with your friends or play this great Bubble Wrap game by yourself. Al Fielding and Marc Chavannes created Bubble Wrap in the late 1950s by accident while trying to invent a type of plastic wallpaper with a paper backing. Now over 50 years later, Bubble Wrap is still a popular packing material as well as an irresistible addictive activity. Check out these titles of fun and strange inventions.

If February is the month of love, why is it so short and cold? It might be cold outside, but it’s hot between these pages, sometimes to the point of being steamy, seductive, and forbidden. We got authors whose characters that not only can control your breath, but take it away. So go ahead and breathe deep and check out these romance top picks which will keep the fires burning all month long.
My Funny Valentine Dianne Williams needs a man. But only for a night. The night of the community center Valentine dinner, to be precise. Exasperated by her children's relentless efforts to get her a date, Dianne finds herself approaching a handsome stranger named Steve and making him an outrageous offer. An offer he doesn't refuse. An offer that might lead to more than just one night. My Hero Bailey York needs a man. But only on paper. She's writing a romance novel and she's having difficulty creating a hero. So she needs a real-life model for her story. Parker Davidson is perfect, everything a hero should be. But he wants to become the hero in her life, not just her book. And not just on Valentine's Day, either!
The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn't drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants and needs to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby's resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis's apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.Add a comment

When tragedies happen we try to shield our children from the hurt and pain, but sometimes our kids find out more than we would like. Here are some recommended books and DVDs by librarians and psychologists to help parents talk with their children that may have questions and concerns. These titles may help children who may be grief-stricken, afraid or troubled.
It is suggested that these books are to be shared together and create an open discussion between parents and their children.
If you ever need additional assistance in finding suggested reads, never hesitate to contact your hometown librarian - we are here to help. Also, you are welcome to share your own recommendations in the comments below.

This November, library patrons brought cans, bags, and boxes of non-perishable food items to their hometown Pioneer Library. which were donated to various organizations, such as Blanchard Lion Cubs, Salvation Army of Norman, Shawnee Rescue Mission, and many others. For every item donated, Pioneer Library System removed $1 off of the existing library fines on patrons' accounts.
This year, the entire Pioneer Library System gathered approximately 3.3 tons of un-opened food items from charitable patrons.
That weighs as much as a Euoplocephalus, which is a dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous period! If you would like to learn more about this extinct creature, please feel free to explore our Encyclopedia Britannica database here.Add a comment
