Dream, Dream, Dream, Dream Dream, Dream... All I want to do is Dream...

I know that when I'm stressed out, all I want to do is sleep... perchance to dream?  

Come see how dreams figure into music and children's literature... A Bulletin Board and two display cases filled with a plethora of dream-inspired titles.

Here are a few photos





























And, as usual - a great shout out to Sarah Reynolds and Jennifer Meixelsperger for their vision and follow-through on these displays!

It's Ban(ne)d Book Week!

Literature and Music are all about playing one thing off against another... so we're motivated by a little play on words... In Music / CCM we always expand Banned Book Week (http://www.ala.org/bbooks/bannedbooksweek) to include music and musicians that have been challenged over the years. 

This year we've taken it a little further... in our title... Here are a few photos, come on upstairs to 2East and take a look ... read a book about a banned band, or listen to one of their challenged recordings from our collection.

Thanks go to Jennifer Meixelsperger and Sarah Reynolds for their inventive ideas and follow through!






















 We have some bookmarks for you, too!


 

Check out a book!!
