Reader’s Advisory Service: The Palmer Branch welcomes all avid readers to fill out our “Reader’s Advisory” forms. If you love reading a particular author and have read all their books, let us match you up with another author that writes similarly.  We can do the same with a favorite plot, topic or even if you have a favorite title, we will be happy to do a search for other titles written similarly.

What's Happening at Palmer...................  
SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! During this holiday season the Palmer Branch would like to invite you and your family to write a letter to a serviceman/women that will be stationed overseas during the holidays. On Tuesday, November 13 beginning at 6:00pm we will have holiday cards, stationery and crafting materials available for children who would like to create a holiday card. Support Our Troops, Inc. will send all the cards overseas in time for the holidays. This program is an ideal way to let the men & women serving in the Armed Forces know that they are being remembered during the holiday season. This program is open to ALL ages. If you would like to just sign a card, we will have holiday cards available.

Support Our Troops, Inc led by Valerie and Blair Ferguson send packages on a regular basis (not just during the holidays) to U.S. soldiers serving overseas. If you know anyone that is currently serving overseas, especially from our local area, that would like to receive a package, please contact: Support The Troops, Inc, 143 Pinehurst Lane, Easton, PA 18042 or sttroops@gmail.com. For anyone interested in donating items that our troops are in need of, please stop in the Palmer Branch for a list of useful items. Personal notes to our soldiers from adults and school aged children are always in need and really boost their moral, letting them know that the people back home support them! If you would like to write a letter, Support the Troops will be happy to send your letter. Drop it off at the Palmer Branch and we will see that the organization receives it. Please do not date the correspondence.

Childrens News:

 

Library Elf: An elf has appeared at the Palmer Branch. He is in need of a name! Once he is named, he will become magical.
Each week the library elf will be "somewhere" in the library. When you visit the library, look for him and write down where you saw him. However you must NEVER TOUCH the elf, or he will lose his magical powers. You MAY talk to him and tell him all your holiday wishes, BUT NO TOUCHING!
On Wednesday, December 19th one name will be drawn. The winner will win the elf and an activity book. Come in and have fun with our Library Elf!!
"Who Was..." Book Group for kids ages 7-12. This past summer the group read and discussed "Who Was Amelia Earhart."
