New Beginnings

Today is a new start to this blog. I don't have to wait until January 1st to start a new tradition, I'll begin today. Holiday time is a place for traditions, but I like to experiment and tweak traditions as I grow older. There is always room for improvement.

This blog is about children's books, teen books, the Voorheesville library, and other book-related thoughts. However, if you are a teen, you don't want to read this blog every day. New parents aren't interested in teen books, movies or music. So, every day you can depend on the information pertaining to what you need or want to know.

Wednesdays will be devoted to parents. I'll share ideas for parents, new books (or classic old ones) from our Parenting collection, websites I come across, and interesting articles to help parents do the best job they can.

Gail Brown and I have just completed a list of books that are filled with gift ideas from babies to teens. A trip to the bookstore can be delightful, but if you want a quality book choice, check out our list first. You can even ask grandparents, aunts and uncles to buy from the list. We have classic books that every child should own to some of our favorite reads this year. When you are shopping with your children, pick up a gift from them for our giving tree. We'll have the tree up until December 13th. There is a list of things you can donate to Parsons Family and Child Center. Your children need to be part of giving as well as receiving. That is the best gift you can give them.
