ADULT WINTER READING PROGRAM
Fifty patrons are currently signed up for the â€œLet It Snowâ€ adult winter reading program. This program will run from January 2 through March 22. Adults and kids in high school that wish to participate may read their choice of Stevens County Library books (or online books from the State Library of Kansas) and then enter the titles into a weekly drawing. ANDâ€¦a basket full of goodies will be awarded to one lucky reader on March 22! Winners of the first weekâ€™s drawing were Dana Kallenbach, Patricia Rich, and Cathy Wolters. The second weekâ€™s winners were Laurie Crawford, Vivian Eves and Joyce Losey.
A statewide reading and discussion project sponsored by the Kansas Center for the Book at the State Library of Kansas, Kansas Reads will be held from January 28 through March 20, 2013. Recommended by a committee of librarians, educators, and authors, Then We Came to the End: A Novel by Joshua Ferris was selected by the State Librarian Jo Budler, reflecting a special collaboration with the Kansas Humanities Council’s statewide “The Way We Worked” initiative. The SCL has two copies of this title currently available for checkout.
The annual Textile Exhibit is fast approaching. If you work in animal, plant, mineral or synthetic fiber, we invite you to share your finished projects at our exhibit. Contact Eunice for details and to register your items. There is also an online registration form available on our website at www.stevenscountylibrary.com. Setup will be January 28 – February 1 and the exhibit will run through the end of February.
1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
Register your child for 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. When you register, you will receive a reading log bookmark to record the first 100 books your child experiences.
After you and your child record 100 books on your reading log bookmark, return the bookmark to the library. For every 100 books your child experiences, he/she will add his/her name to our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten progress chart! Upon the completion of every 100 books, you will receive a new reading log bookmark.
Upon reaching 1,000 books, your child will receive a certificate of completion and a small gift. Any child that has not yet enrolled in Kindergarten is eligible for this program. Count any books that are read to your child, no matter who reads the books: brother, sister, babysitter, or even a librarian at Circle Time!
