March Released Tasks

March is a great time to enjoy the library. We always have programs for kids but this month we have two events planned that will be fun for the entire family.

Kick off Spring Break by joining us Friday night, March 24th for our Family Movie Extravaganza. We’ll be showing an old classic with a flying car and have lots of fun crafts, activities, a photo op, and great snacks. All for FREE! The movie starts at 5:30 pm.

To finish off the week of Spring Break come enjoy Delano Park with us to celebrate Take a Walk in the Park Day. Thursday, March 30th from 10 am until 12 noon DPL will be in the park. We will be setting up fun activities for the entire family centered around the Riverwild children’s area. There will be story time, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, a princess appearance, and a Story Walk with the book Red Sings from Treetops by Joyce Sidman. We hope you all can join us.

The park offers some really nice spots to sit and read.  If you are taking the Adult Reading Challenge this year, pick out your books for the next two tasks and join us in the park.

In honor of Women’s History Month the first task is to read any book that deals with women’s rights.  Read a novel about a suffragette or read a biography of some of the women who fought hard for women’s rights, and don’t forget that not all women enjoy the freedom most of us in the United States take for granted today.

The second task is to read a book that would be classified as Eco-fiction. By definition eco-fiction is “ecologically oriented fiction, which may be nature-oriented (non-human oriented) or environment-oriented (human impacts on nature). Source: Jim Dwyer’s Where the Wild Books Are: A Field Guide to Eco-Fiction (University of Nevada Press, 2010). You can find more information on the subject at http://eco-fiction.com/ .

There will be a suggested reading list for each of these tasks in the notebook outside our office.

Happy Reading!
