As we say goodbye to autumn and hello to winter we thought it appropriate to show off some of the books at Cubberley Library with a wintry theme. Once you take them home, requirements for reading these books are

- Someone needing a tale of whirling snowflakes or winters chill.
Please stop by before winter break. Snow is falling (somewhere) and books are calling.
