Dr. Lise Eliot Explores Blue Brains and Pink Brains

We've got a fascinating special program coming up on Thursday, February 25 at 7:00 p.m., as Dr. Lise Eliot, author of the book Pink Brain, Blue Brain: How Small Differences Grow into Troublesome Gaps - and What We Can Do About It, visits the library to talk about the differences between girls' and boys' brains, as well as the harmful nature of gender stereotypes.  Dr. Eliot's book has been lauded by the New Yorker, Newsweek and The Washington Post and the program will be of interest to parents, caregivers, teachers, and all those interested in the development of children.  You can also get a copy of the book here.



Lots of Smiles on Library Snapshot Day

Thanks to everyone who braved the wintry weather on Wednesday and participated in Library Snapshot Day.  This was a great way for communities throughout the state to show how important their local libraries are to them.  Be sure to also check out our pictures from Library Snapshot Day!
