Well, the world stopped spinning for a while this last week (i.e. no technology!), but the library is back online and so, I hope, are all our readers! Our best wishes and thoughts go out to anyone who was badly affected by Hurricane Sandy, especially our neighbors in New York and New Jersey. The library suffered no permanent damage, but was closed for 3 1/2 days, and without internet access for several more.
I have so many things to blog about! But I don't want to overwhelm, so I'll just pick one:
2 great storytimes are coming up here at SLPL -
On Tuesday, Nov. 13, from 6:45-7:45, Carol Lacock (our children's programming librarian) will be hosting a story time featuring the award- winning book When the Shadbush Blooms by Carla Messinger. It will be a Native American Heritage themed story time, for ages 3-10 years, with activities.
In preparation for:
"Lenape Lifeways" - a Native American program that gives attendees a better idea of Lenape life in the past. Highlights include demonstrations, interactive exhibits and Q & A time with educators and consultants Carla and Allan Messinger (author of When the Shadbush Blooms). This program will take place Tuesday, Nov. 27th, from 6:30-7:30, and is open to ages 4 years to adult.
Both of these wonderful programs are FREE: register online here
