Dewey, our storytime pup, is going on vacation. He will be traveling during the month of May so there will be no stoytimes or playgroups from May 2 - 28. Drop by Kids' World to see the post cards that Dewey sends us and even write a letter back telling Dewey all the exciting things you are doing.

In addition to our 10 circulating iPads, Kids’ World now has 3 iPads for children to play with in our Early Learning area.  The iPads are loaded with high quality apps for young children.  Kids will have a blast exploring apps about music, animals, art, letters, numbers, and much more!  Each iPad has two stools in front of it to encourage children to use the iPad with a friend or caregiver.  Sharing the iPad allows you to enhance your child's learning, as well as presents opportunities for your child to practice social skills such as sharing and negotiation.

Kids' World has added 17 Science Kits to the collection. Included are kits which cover a variety of topics and interests. The collection offers a solar car, a USB microscope and a model of the human heart. There's a kit featuring sharks and one covering the periodic table. To access this collection in the catalog, search for "science kit" under keyword and refine the search by clicking on "toy" in the right hand column. When you're in the library, stop by to take a look. They're located to the right of the Kids' World Desk next to the STEM kits.

Who knew that given a flat balance beam, buckets, and cars, that children would build a road and a hill?  Just another example of how open play can inspire creativity, problem-solving skills, collaboration, and sharing as well as give children an opportuntiy to explore scientific concepts such as ramps and velocity. 
 
Join us for Playgroups following storytime on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:45-11:45.  Storytimes and Playgroups take place every week, with a scheduled break from August 11 - September 1.  Storytimes and Playgroups will resume their regular schedule beginning September 2.

We're almost finished with re-arranging the Picture Book section of Kids' World. The books are still in order by author but are in bins according to fun topics. Beautiful signs created by the library's graphic artists display the different subjects - Things That Go, Pretty and Pink, Growing Up, Play, Animals and more. It's empowering for kids because they can now browse in the areas that interest them. If you want a tour stop by the Kids' World Desk and we'll show you around. Hope to see you soon!

Even though our yards are filled with snow, we know it's on it's way. We have to believe it will soon be warm enough for a walk without putting on boots. The library has a lot of books about outdoor activities, projects and the seasons. Here's a list of books to share with your child about Spring. Even if you don't build that birdhouse - you can still look at the pictures and talk about it. It's been a long, hard winter for everyone and kids like to dream about warmer weather and playing outside too. Have fun together thinking about Spring!
