@ YOUR LIBRARY
ADULT WINTER READING PROGRAM
Fifty-six patrons are currently signed up for the â€œLet It Snowâ€ adult winter reading program. This program will run 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! Last week sixty-nine books were read!!! The winners of the Friday drawing were Peggy Bane, Connie Murphy, and Ashley Pearcy.
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 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 up and INCREDIBLE!!! More than seventy pieces are being shown in the meeting area of the library. Please take time to come in and view examples of our community textile artists!
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!
COMPUTER CLASS VIA ELMeR
On Saturday, February 9 at 4:00 p.m., the library will sponsor a class called â€œSocialize Yourself: Online, fun yet safeâ€ in the meeting area. The class will deal with social media and how you can protect yourself and your children in the online environment. Please let the library know if you will be attending, so the system can be set up in advance. If there is no response by Friday, February 8, we will contact the site of origin for the class and cancel the connection. Thank you.
