January Classics Book Club

Join us Tuesday, January 25th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Slaughterhouse-Five, an American classic, is one of the world’s great antiwar books. Centering on the infamous firebombing of Dresden, Billy Pilgrim’s odyssey through time reflects the mythic journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we fear most.

Flipster

Reading magazines and drinking tea is a great way to spend a winter afternoon. But subscribing to titles gets overwhelming and individual issues cost a fortune. What’s a reader to do?

Don’t worry, the Library has us covered! With your library card you have access to Flipster. Download the app (just search for Flipster in your favorite App store) or login online and read over 70 titles across a wide range of subjects! Check out some favorite titles below!

Coding Kits

We loved our kids coding club almost as much as the kids, but since, we can’t meet in person, we are sharing our coding kits with you!

Stop by and check out our Coding Kits in the Juvenile Room! Each kit includes a game or toy, handy guides to help you get started, and programming challenges.

Current kits include:

  • Beebot
  • Botley, The Coding Robot
  • Let’s Go Code
  • Ozobot
  • Turing Tumble

We hope to add additional kits in the upcoming months and would love your feedback and suggestions! Also be sure to check out our Coding for Kids resource guide to get more great coding ideas.

These items were part of a Computational Thinking Kit given to the Library through a statewide initiative that was funded by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Office of Commonwealth Libraries.

If You Like Dog Man…
