Theme related books are available for check out and plenty of topic related discussions accompany children and their families on their way home!” explains Clare Eakin, Youth Services Coordinator, Massanutten Regional Library. 
 
The themes for the fall include peacocks for September, seahorses for October, and skyscrapers for November.
