A library in Missouri has organized tons of series!  It's pretty awesome; it contains over 29,000 children's books.

You can also use the database Novelist.  Find children's books similar to other books, their descriptions, and reviews of them too.  Have your library card handy.

Darien Library's Spring Author Series has Judith Warner visiting Thursday, March 4 at 7 p.m.

In her newest book, Judith Warner, "New York Times" bestselling author of 2005's Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety, returns to explore the answers to two very timely questions: Are we overdiagnosing and overmedicating our children?  Are parents and physicians labeling children to "explain away" bad behavior? With five years of rigorous investigation and research of parents, psychologists, psychiatrists, and other experts, Warner brings concerns and perspectives to this controversial debate.

This event is co-sponsored by the Darien YWCA Parent Awareness Network.  Refreshments will be served.

Presentation will conclude with a book signing.  Books will be available for purchase. 

Additional parking for evening and weekend Library programs on Thorndal Circle (behind Nielsen's).

How do you use the Children's Library?

The new Darien Library has officially been open for a year!  Can you believe it?!

If you've used the Children's Library relaxing, reading together, searching for books, movies (and more!), using the computers, researching for homework...how was the process?

 

 

Is the room set up to assist with what you'd like to find?  Please tell us.  Here's a survey that asks about your experience using the new Children's Library.

 

  

 

One of the reasons why the Microsoft Surface was moved from the original spot was due to feedback.  We ask for it, and really appreciate it!

Thanks a whole bunch!
