Join Bookworms this month on March 26th at 6:30 p.m. as we discuss Bonnie Garmus's Lessons in Chemistry. We are always looking for new faces with fresh perspectives.
A brief synopsis of Lessons in Chemistry:
"Set in 1960s California, this blockbuster debut is the hilarious, idiosyncratic and uplifting story of a female scientist whose career is constantly derailed by the idea that a woman's place is in the home, only to find herself starring as the host of America's most beloved TV cooking show. Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing as an average woman. But it's the 1960s and despite the fact that she is a scientist, her peers are very unscientific when it comes to equality. The only good thing to happen to her on the road to professional fulfillment is a run-in with her super-star colleague Calvin Evans (well, she stole his beakers). "

Welcome to 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Club! This free program encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before they enter school—a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves.
One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation—a key to school and learning success. Plus, sharing stories together is fun!
Here are the easy steps for participation:
1. Read together.
2. Mark the dot on your child’s log. If you read a book more than once, you can record it each time. Books read at our library Story Time, daycare, or others also count.
3. When you finish 100 books, give your sheet to the librarian and
· Receive a sticker
· Receive a book
4. Repeat steps 1—3 and receive a different sticker and book at each level.
5. After finishing 1,000 books, your child
· Receives a sticker and a book
· Receives a special prize
This club has no end date except your child’s going to school, so don’t feel rushed—just enjoy the experience! Take every chance you have to read with your children, talk about stories, say nursery rhymes, sing songs, and attend library programs. By reading just three stories a day you and your child will have read over 1,000 books in one year. You will also have shared many special moments along the way.
The library is a fun place featuring books to check out, DVDs, free programs, and great suggestions for what to read. Stop in often and talk to our friendly staff—we are here to help.
