Join us for book discussion, August 9, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss A Tap On the Window by Linwood Barclay
When Cal Weaver stops at a red light on a rainy night while driving home, he ignores the bedraggled-looking teenage girl trying to hitch a ride – even when she starts tapping on his window. But when he realises she’s one of his son’s classmates, he knows he can’t really leave her, alone, on the street.
But nothing prepares him for the consequences of trying to help her out. The next morning he’s gone from Good Samaritan to Murder Suspect, and with one girl dead and another missing, he’s suddenly at the centre of a deadly puzzle that reaches right to the heart of the town – from its bullying police force to its strangely furtive mayor – and finally to one family’s shocking secret.
Thanks to the Allegheny County Library Association’s Youth Services, two American Girl dolls are now available to borrow! Julie is a historical doll from 1974 and Tenney was a doll of the year in 2017. You must come into the library to check them out. Check out some of the fun they had over the weekend!
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!
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:
Botley, The Coding Robot
Let’s Go Code
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.
