If you have visited the Children’s Library, you may have noticed our pet hedgehog Sassafras. She is usually asleep during the day under her cozy fleece blanket, only making special appearances for meet and greets, class visits, and story times. If you have yet to see her, trust us, she is a cutie!
Lately, Miss Sassafras has not been feeling well, resulting in a trip to the vet. For the past week, library staff have been treating her with a grape flavored antibiotic. She is a bit squirmy, but has been an overall good patient. We are hoping that this medicine will do the trick and have her back to her sassy self.
For those of you that know Sassafras, send some love her way and wish her well!
The Putnam County Library was out at the Fall Funfest on Saturday September 10, 2016 for WCTE’s 21st annual Stations of Imagination! We were excited to be able to host a booth where children could try out the PBS KIDS apps on our mobile lab of iPad minis. iPad’s are available for in-house check out in the Children’s Library; just ask about them at the circulation desk!
Also, a big thanks to Joanne White of the Putnam County Library Friends and Imagination Library for bringing books to share with families who visited our station! We had a great time and we hope you did too!
