This summer, our Junior Library volunteers have been working on additions to the Kids World web site. Check out the videos they made using the apps DoodleCast and Puppet Pals on iPads. Each video is an excerpt from one of our summer reading books. They have also been working on podcasts in the Studio where they talk about their top picks for the summer.
If you enjoy writing or are interested in giving it a try, we have just the club for you. It's called Kids' Ink. Conducted by local author Carol Brendler, you will have the opportunity to write, share your work, and receive constructive feedback. Each meeting will be held the third Thursday of every month after school. Check the calendar for details and to register. For ages 10-13
Something funny is happening in Kids’ World! Have you seen the joke board in our I Can Read area? The joke changes every month. Don’t forget to take a peek and have a laugh while you’re at the Library!
I love this series and Percy Jackson. Wow. Who wouldn't want to be the child of Poseidon. Another reason I love these books is because they make you want to learn more about Greek Mythology. We have lots of books-- at all different reading levels about Greek Gods, Heroes, and Monsters. Check them out!
Come out and play the week of September 9. Kids' World Playgroups (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10:45-11:45) will be all about math! Child-friendly activities will include counting, weighing, and number games. And don’t miss our Math Midway 2 Go exhibit opening September 9 in the Marketplace. Six interactive exhibits will give your child hands-on experience with the wonders of mathematics. (Brought to you by the National Museum of Mathematics)
Need to read a book assigned by your school this summer? Kids' World has booklists from many schools. We also try to pull the books and place them on a cart near the Summer Reading display. If you're wondering if we have your book contact us. If it's available, we'll put it downstairs at the drive-up. Hope to hear from you!
Did you enjoy attending one of our many Muppet programs at the library in the last several weeks? Stop into Kids World and play with our Muppet puppets! We have one set to play with at our puppet stage and new puppets you can check out!
March is full of fun holidays. One of my favorites is "If My Pet Had Thumbs Day" which is celebrated on March 3rd. Just think of all the things your pet could do if it had thumbs, like no more wet tennis balls for starters. I know my dog would be helping himself to a lot more treats!
