See You Around!

Since I'm leaving town soon, I wanted to say goodbye to everybody who has followed my blogs for the past three years.  It's been fun!  My human family is moving, so I won't be able to visit the Library anymore.  But you can still drop in whenever you're in the neighborhood.

Find out about our upcoming children's programs during Spring 2014 by clicking the logos below.




No registration is required!  Just come as you are (and bring a caregiver, for our patrons ages 0-6).  You don't need a disguise, but that can be fun, too.

We Have a Ukulele

Remember last month, when Casey at the Bat and Crafty Gal applied for an Indiana State Library (ISL) rock star startup kit for their youth services programs?

Guess what?  THEY WON!  Soon they will be playing a brand new ukulele!  Drop by the Library for their early literacy programs, and you can sing along!

Mousetronaut Goes to Mars

 
Mousetronaut Goes to Mars, by Astronaut Mark Kelly
(Illustrated by C. F. Payne)

This is a cute children's picture book and is filled with scientific information.  The drawings are extremely authentic, which makes sense, given that author Mark Kelly is a NASA astronaut, and C. F. Payne can draw anything.  It is an uplifting adventure story that should inspire young readers to strive to explore and achieve.  It's available in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog.
