The library continued its celebration of all things fairy tale by welcoming tween fairy tale author Liesl Shurtliff to the library on February 25. Shurtliff, the author of Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin and Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk, talked with a group of more than 150 fairy tale fans about myths and legends, where they come from, how they change and what they mean to us today. More than 40 tweens joined Shurtliff for a writing workshop earlier in the day for fourth- to sixth-grade students.
Please join us for an upcoming fairy-tale themed program or visit Kids’ World's Once Upon a Time…Exploring the World of Fairy Tales interactive play exhibit for children ages 3 to 10 that runs through March 26.

It was the Summer of STEM at the library. While school was out, the library was full of children of all ages engaging in science and technology.
Children and parents packed the Training Center for an introduction to 3D printing. Just a short walk away, in Kids' World, a group of toddlers and preschoolers were engineering structures from tubes and connectors in a free-play session. Problem-solving skills were on full display as the hard hat-wearing group of young builders figured out which piece connected where. Nearby, another young visitor played on a felt board featuring honey bees and numbers. As her caregiver prompted her to "count the bees," little did she know, she too was learning through STEM free play and toys provided by the library.
