“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.” -American Author Mason Cooley

In honor of Jacob’s hard work and tireless energy, the White Bear Town Library has been renamed Jacob’s Library. There are hundreds of books in the library on every topic imaginable. Jacob the Librarian knows each and every one.

The Library is adding more books every day.  Every book he chooses celebrates amazing children from every walk of life. Jacob says, “It’s all about encouraging, respecting and supporting each-other by learning and appreciating the beauty in everyone we read about.”

Finally, please join Jacob every Tuesday morning for Story Time Hour.  Each week, he chooses a story to read from the newest additions to the library.  Make sure you join the fun. If you know of a book that you want added to the library, make sure you leave a comment on this page.

The White Bear Library is dedicated to diversity in Children’s Literature.

White Bear says, “with books, anything is possible and everything is within reach.”
