1001 Books Before Kindergarten

Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help to strengthen their language skills and building vocabulary.  The program is designed to help prepare your children for kindergarten by developing these skills.

1,001 books sounds like a lot of books, but if you read only three books a day, you will be done in just a year !

For a log, come to StoryTime on Tuesdays at 10:30 AM, Baby Lapsit on Wednesdays at 10:30 AM or go to the Kids site on HCPL's website http://kids.hcpl.net/pandt/1001BooksBeforeKindergarten.htm

to print your own.  Books read at storytimes count, too. When you complete a log, bring it to the Children's Librarian to have it dated and to get a log for the next level.  Continue on with each log until you reach 1,001 books read.

West University Book Club-April 2

somenonePlease join us to discuss Someone, by Alice McDermott.  Wednesday April 2, at 11 a.m.

“Who is going to love me?” Marie asks her older brother, Gabe, after her heart is broken. “Someone,” he replies. How humble this pronoun is, and what a provocative title it makes. Readers who love refined, unhurried, emotionally fluent fiction will rejoice at National Book Award–winner McDermott’s return. McDermott (After This, 2006) is a master of hidden intensities, intricate textures, spiked dialogue, and sparkling wit. -Donna Seaman, Booklist

West University Book Club-March 5

my beloved worldPlease join us to discuss My Beloved World, by Sonia Sotomayor. Wednesday March 5, at 11 a.m.

Already knowing the arc of Sonia Sotomayor’s biography doesn’t adequately prepare you for the sound of her voice in this winning memoir that ends, interestingly, before the Yale Law School grad was sworn in as the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Hers is a voice that lands squarely between self-deprecating and proud, grateful and defiant; a voice lilted with bits of Puerto Rican poetry; a voice full of anger, sadness, ambition, and love. My Beloved World is one resonant, glorious tale of struggle and triumph. –Sara Nelson
