The Friends of the Library meet at 10:30 a.m. Monday in the library classroom. Be a part of this important library support group as it plans programs and activities for fall.
We have been getting some great new books on both health-related issues and job-seeking skills, thanks to two federal grants obtained by our Northern Waters Library Service.
A new book was given to both the Superior library and the Lake Nebagamon branch called “Keeping the Fires Burning: a History and Memoir of Camp Nebagamon” by Nardie and Sally Lorber Stein.
We have a beautiful display of nature photographs in our lobby display case brought in by Larry and Linda Dunlap to be shared with us during the month of August. Be sure to stop and look at it.
As you prepare to send your kid’s off to school, don’t forget the importance of reading to your pre-school child too. It will help them become ready for school when it is their turn.
Some tips: 1. Make it a special time. Hold your child. Sit close together so both of you can point to the pictures and the words. 2. Talk about the stories and pictures as you read. Ask questions like “What do you think comes next?” or “What is happening here?” 3. Have your child turn the pages. 4. Make up a story from the pictures in a book or magazine. What stories can you create together?
New fiction: “Burn” by Nevada Barr, “Scarlet Nights” by Jude Deveraux, “Rough Country” by John Sandford, “The Cobra” by Frederick Forsyth, “Veil of Night” by Linda Howard, “Roy & Lillie” by Loren Estleman, “Hangman” by Faye Kellerman, and “As Husbands Go” by Susan Isaacs.
New DVD’s: “A Traveler’s Guide to the Planets,” “Dinosaurs Decoded,” “Building Decks,” “From Paris With Love,” “The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo,” “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” “The Last Station,” “Green Zone,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “The Bounty Hunter,” and “Greenberg.”
