A new month means another visit to my friends at After School Matters! I brought new books with me on my visit. The most popular books were the monster books. You can find monster books and more when visit the library. I can't wait to see you!
April is National Poetry Month! On Tuesday night, 55 people attended our annual Poetry Fest, where 19 honored poets read their poems. They each received a pencil, certificate, and paperback book. Then we enjoyed a cookie reception! Check out all the fun on our Flickr page.
You can host your own Poetry Fest by sharing personal poetry or by reading someone else's. Check out the 811's in Non-Fiction for poetry inspiration. We can't wait to see you at the library!
How did we celebrate National Library Week and Fox Cities Book Fest? Author and illustrator Nancy Carlson spoke to 350 third graders at the library on Tuesday morning. Nancy’s books have been picked for Reading Rainbow selections and she is the recipient of a Parent’s Choice Award. We enjoyed Nancy’s visit and her great books and drawings!
