Meet someone new….Read a biography!Hi there!We hope your school year is off to a great start! For the next couple of weeks, we’re going to be focusing on a section of the library many people don’t even know about: the biographies! A biography is a book that tells the true story of someone’s life. You might think that reading a biography sound boring, but you can learn a lot about some really cool people like Ham the Astrochimp (the first monkey astronaut) or The Boy Who Invented TV. Come check out our display or look at other biographies, written for kids just like you!
The Library has a great collection of materials as well as some great programs for kids.
Storytime is year-round on the following schedule:
- Wednesdays & Thursdays at 10am
- Wednesdays & Thursdays at 11am
- All Ages:
- Thursdays at 1pm
In June and July we run a Summer Reading Program with great prizes and weekly special events.
