All library branches will be closed Monday, October 9, for Columbus Day. All neighborhood libraries will be closed Saturday, October 7.

A new book by Margaret Wise Brown! As a companion to the classic Goodnight Moon, which turns 70 this year, Brown’s never-before-published book Good Day, Good Night is brought to life with illustrations from Loren Long. A companion to the original, Good Day, Good Night has much for the young reader to discover, expanding the “great green room” into the great big world.  Place a hold here.
