Summer reading ends soon!

Summer is almost over, the children are getting ready to return to school, and that means the library's summer reading program is coming to an end. The program officially ends this Saturday, August 11. Providing that we don't run out of prizes, we will still accept reading cards until the end of August. However, after August 11 you will not receive another reading card when you turn in your current card. For example, if you turn in your third card on August 22, you will still receive your third card prize but you will not receive the fourth card.

Books that introduce mindfulness and meditation to kids

With cell phones, crammed calendars and responsibilities of all sorts clamoring for our attention, many of us cannot achieve mindfulness. Mindfulness is about being fully present and paying close attention to the moment we're in. The benefits of mindfulness are numerous-not just for us but for our children as well.

Have you checked out the Game Kits we have in the Cindy Barden Teacher's Resource Room? These kits and all the resources in this room can be checked out by anyone, not just teachers. Each kit comes with a unique zippered durable fabric storage bag that opens into a learning game. These learning games support readiness concepts and language skills.
