Spring is almost here. Only nine more days. I don't know about you but I think everyone is ready for more sunshine and warmer temps.
Dr. Seuss would like to thank all those who attended his birthday party @ the Cherokee Public Library March 2. It always makes a birthday special when one can share stories, games and fun with friends.

The few changes have taken place in the children's and youth department upstairs at the library. The children's books on tape and CD display is now located by the bins in the children's section. Dr. Seuss's books are being highlighted on a shelving unit next to the parenting section. Books about Spring, St. Patrick, and Easter are just around the corner from the Dr. Seuss books.
The youth department has some new spinners for displaying paperbacks. The magazine area for the youth has been moved and the new March/April POP STAR magazine is waiting to be read. If you come to the library and you can't find something be sure to ask the librarian.
It's hard to believe, but I am already getting things lined up for our Summer Reading Program. The theme this year is Make a Splash at Your Library. The program will run during the month of July. Lisa Laird from Orange City, and Indiana Bones, a legendary storyteller have agreed to come and "Make a Splash" with their puppetry, magic, and storytelling. More information will be given as it grows closer to July.
Don't forget to pick up a March newsletter and don't forget Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend.
