The Main Library is in need of adult and teen volunteers to help us keep up with the demand for library materials. Assignments include shelving returned items, checking shelves to make sure items are in proper order, and locating and collecting materials that have been requested (think library scavenger hunt!). Whether you are looking for a long-term volunteer assignment or fulfilling your school service hour requirement, we'd love to hear from you. The hours are flexible! Information and applications are available at http://volunteer.ualibrary.org.

The Elephant Keepers' Children
The setting is the imaginary island of Fino off the coast of Denmark, where the world’s religions live together peacefully. Father is a vicar and Mother is a fine artist. For the second time in the lives of the three siblings, Hans, Tidle and Peter, their very eccentric parents disappear. The youngest, fourteen year old Peter is the narrator. From his precocious view point he describes the weird circumstances and incredible adventures they have finding their parents, while the rest of Denmark is trying to corral them to keep them out of harm’s way. There is a lot of satire, laugh out loud moments and a satisfying ending.
