Science Fair Display Boards

You asked for it, you got it! The Youth/Teen Services Department now carries tri-fold display boards commonly used for science fair projects. You may purchase one for $5.00 and avoid the trip to the store. Still in the planning stages? Plan on attending our Science Project Workshop on Sat. Dec. 6 at 12:00, registration requested. We'll help you find and explore an idea.

Join P.T.A.B!!

What is P.T.A.B? P.T.A.B is the Pre-Teen Advisory Board! Who can be in the P.T.A.B? 4th and 5th graders are welcome! The P.T.A.B meets every first and third Tuesday of the month, starting in November. Meetings will take place in the Activity Room from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. At each meeting we will either be doing a craft, playing games, having some snacks, or just hanging out. The goal of P.T.A.B is to figure out activities that 4th and 5th graders would like to do here at the library! Sign-up is not required, but I would like an idea of how many people are interested, so if you are interested, call (708) 474-2447 or come into the Youth Services Department and sign-up for week one!

Today I Will Fly

Today I Will Fly by Mo Willems is a sweet picture book for children that demonstrates what a little determination can do for one friendly pink pig. Piggie's friend Elephant Gerald is skeptical about the ability of pigs flying but quickly learns the impossible becomes possible with the help of friends. Kids will enjoy this story and ask to hear it again and again. Today I Will Fly is one of the twenty books on the list of Monarch nominees. Children in grades kindergarten through third can vote for their favorite from the list after reading or listening to 5 of the titles.
