Shout-out from the BPL's Nate Hill: On Monday, September first (Labor Day), the <a href="http://www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/">Brooklyn Public Library </a> and <a href="http://www.ecoeatery.com/">Habana Outpost Eco-Eatery </a> will together throw a Back to School Bash to prepare kids for the upcoming school year. Starting at noon, kids can sign up for a new BPL card, enjoy storytime by Brooklyn's best librarians, jump and shout at a dance party, learn about being green (including learning how to start a compost bin at home or in the classroom), join in eco-friendly crafts, have their face painted and get some back to school goodies that all the cool kids will have in their backpacks, including notebooks. <a href="http://www.ecoeatery.com/press/BackToSchool.html">Date: Monday, September 1, 2008/ Time: 12- 5 PM / Location: Habana Outpost Ecoeatery, 757 Fulton Street at South Portland Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 718.858.9500 </a>. What's your library doing to celebrate or otherwise observe B-to-S days?
