December 2017 Events

Ask the Youth Department

Which material collection, in the Youth Department, do you wish patrons knew more about?

Pam-I'd like them to know about our recent acquisition of books about STEM--Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. They cover a wide range of important concepts and people who are changing our world.

Stephanie-I’d like them to know about backpacks. Backpacks hold many wonders. There are a wide range of topics and characters to choose from, like art, Dr. Seuss, weather, the United States and so many more. In these backpacks you’ll find books, puzzles, learning toys, and interactive elements. Backpacks check out for 1 week and are located outside the castle in the youth department.

Rachelle-I wish more patrons knew about our Parenting Collection. It's housed in the Youth Department next to the kids puppet show area. It's a little hidden, but full of great topics from common concerns like picky eaters, potty training, and restless sleepers; to more serious and difficult topics like death of a loved one, behavioral disorders, and coping during a divorce.

Ask the Youth Department-August

Q: What do you think is the most underused resource the in the youth library that deserves more exposure and users?

Pam-Hoopla digital media service lets you borrow movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, comics and TV shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone,and even your TV, using your library card! With no waiting, titles can be streamed immediately, or downloaded to phones or tablets for offline enjoyment later where wifi is unavailable. Hoopla has hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from, with more being added daily.

Stephanie- I love I have used it with my kids several times. It is a wonderful resource because they’re very helpful, without just giving the answer. They work with your child to find the answer. is for grades 4-12 and each session can last up to 20 minutes. They are “open” every day from 1-10 pm! If your child is struggling with their math homework, give a try. 

Rachelle- I like to recommend TumbleBooks to families. The books are animated, talking picture books. So much fun!
