Ahoy, Maties!

Did you know August is International Pirate Month?  Or should I say Arrr-gust?  It’s the perfect time to read a pirate book!  You can find a treasure trove of fun picture books for kids featuring pirates at the Olathe Public Library.  Click here to browse a list of pirate titles.

If you’re really into pirates, mark your calendar for International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19.  To help you get ready, you can brush up on your pirate lingo by studying Pirate using the library’s Mango language courses.  And if you’re looking for something a little more practical than Pirate, you can study more than 70 different foreign languages online using Mango.  It's free through the library's website.  All you need is your library card!

How much did it cost the pirate to get his ears pierced?  A buccaneer.  Happy Pirate Month!
