FIRST ANNUAL PEEP INTO A GOOD BOOK DIORAMA CHALLENGE!
Celebrate National Library Week (April 19-25) by creating a Peeps diorama, based on your favorite book or a literary theme! All characters must be portrayed using Peeps, and all dioramas must use a standard size shoebox. NO FOOD can be used as a material, other than your Peeps characters. Entries will be judged in four separate categories: Adults, Children, Teens, Families.
Full rules and details are listed on the entry form (available online and at all service desks.) Drop off your completed diorama and entry form during regular library hours April 17-19.

Drawing on hugely influential academic research about the importance of having “high-quality conversations” with your baby, the Starling can be clipped on to a child’s clothing, where it will track the number of words he or she hears and says each day, then feed the information into a smartphone app that encourages parents to meet daily goals.
Pick a book to review from the Teen Zone or from Overdrive online. Fill out the Teen Book Reviewers Request Form (bit.ly/TBRRequest) so a librarian can approve your title. If your title is approved we will send you the link to the Teen Book Reviewers Submission Form.
Please allow for at least a weeks turn around time between your requests and a librarian’s response. Each review is worth 3 hours and each student is allowed to do 3 reviews a year. We will not accept reviews on books that were assigned for school and we limit multiple reviews on the same book.
