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.
Come into the Computer Lab and practice basic computer skills and get basic computer help with word processing, spreadsheets, Email, Internet, Library databases, social networking sites, etc.
It is the end of One Book, One City for Kids and it is time to celebrate! Join us for an afternoon of food, fun and family activities that explore Special Delivery! by Sue Stauffacher.
Parents and caregivers are invited to bring their preschool children, ages 3 to 5, to 45-minute classes featuring literacy-rich activities such as interactive storytelling using puppets, dramatic play, and hands-on fun. Related songs, fingerplays, and activities are interspersed between books. Classes end with a fun and creative art activity.
