New At The Library

Little Elm Public Library Information 06/20/06
What would you do if you were only given three weeks to live? Well that is exactly how long salesclerk Georgia Byrd was given in the newly released DVD movie “Last Holiday”. You will laugh and cry as you experience with Georgia how one could spend their last days but I definitely would not try this at home.

What would you do if you had a million dollars or the means to make a million dollars and it lived in your house? Walt Disney’s “Million Dollar Duck” is a good clean family fun film about a duck that lays golden eggs and how the family tries to pay the bills without anyone catching on. I have eaten white and brown hen eggs but I have never tried a golden duck egg. I’ll bet it would save a lot of money at the dentist if you needed a filling.

What do these two movies have in common? They can both be found at your Little Elm Public Library. Other new release DVD titles include Big Momma’s House 2; Transamerica; The Producers; Cheaper by the Dozen 2; The Family Stone; The New World; and Rumor Has It.

Summer is really flying by. In a couple more weeks it will be July, six more months before Christmas. Twenty four hours just doesn’t seem to go as far as it used to.

Have you been taking time to smell the roses, listen to the birds singing, hug someone, laugh, just overall taking time from your busy schedule to breathe? If you need something to take the edge off while you are driving, books on tape are wonderful. The last book on tape I listened to was R is for Ricochet by Sue Grafton. Good story but I am still trying to figure out where she came up with the title. One book title that I can always figure out is the Clifford the Big Red Dog titles and speaking of Clifford, the big red dog himself will be visiting the library on Saturday, June 24th during family story time that starts at 10:30am. Make sure and bring your camera.

There is still plenty of room for anyone to join the summer reading club. It is a read at your own pace, read at your own place, read in your own space, I do not like green eggs and ham but I do like reading in a race…Whoops, lost my train of thought…The reading club is for all ages. All you have to do is read or listen to twenty items and turn in your reading list to receive reading awards and enter the grand prize drawing.

If you have been collecting food for the Little Elm Food Bank, you can drop off your items at the library. Items that are collected are picked up on a regular basis. With the town population being 19,900, if everyone gave one item, it would take care of a lot of people for a long time. Have a heart, do your part, fill your cart, good time to start!

Don’t forget that the library is now a hot spot so come cool off at the hottest spot in town!
