Sign up, read ten books, and win prizes! A great way for grown-ups to beat the winter blues.
One Book, One City for Kids is an annual reading program that encourages all 4th graders in the city to read and discuss the same book. The program also strives to encourage a lifelong love of reading among students, to inspire readers to bring story ideas and themes to life through discussion, and to build collaborative ties between public libraries, school libraries, and area schools. This year the entire city will be reading Special Delivery! by Sue Stauffacher. In this book, ten-year-old Keisha and her family’s animal rescue center face more challenges involving a baby crow in a mailbox and a skunk found in the nearby community garden.
This basic course is designed to provide students with an introduction to various aspects of personal computing. Attention will be focused on understanding the basic hardware components, operating systems, how to use the mouse, and saving files to storage devices. If you are just beginning to use computers, start with this class.
Come explore the Lakes with us! We’ll read a range of titles including mystery, history, fiction, and nonfiction all taking place in the Great Lakes region–from Chicago to Cleveland. This book club will be led by our smart librarians and will take place the first Thursday of every month. Additional copies of the book are available to be checked out on Level 4 of the Main Library. December’s selection is Reimagining Detroit by John Gallagher.
