Phoenix Book Club: Graphic Novels

This month we all picked from the Children's comic books and graphic novels selections. With the whole section to choose from, kids picked a great variety of titles!

Graphic Novels

Preschool Discovery: Magnets

Bring your preschooler to the Wollaston Branch to play with and learn about magnets this coming Wednesday! December's Preschool Discovery evening is all about magnets and magnetism, so we'll be exploring what is and isn't magnetic, how magnets push and pull at each other, and how magnets can affect things around them.

Phoenix Book Club - November 2014

This month we creeped ourselves out by reading books full of werewolves, zombies and things that go bump in the night.

Join the Night Owls Book Club!

Our book club for 3rd and 4th graders kicks off in November with a discussion of the Newbery Medal winning book Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo. The Night Owls Book Club meets on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m to discuss a book and do crafts and other activities. Through the year we'll read some great books, make some fun crafts, watch a movie or two and maybe even have a pizza night!

Preschool Discovery: Your Senses

Drop into the Wollaston Branch this Wednesday the 8th any time between 6:30 and 7:30 for our new science program: Preschool Discovery!

Preschool Discovery is a brand new program for parents and children in preschool (and early elementary - we won't make the kindergarteners leave!) to explore science and math topics at the library. Each month we'll have a new topic and three new activities to try at the Wollaston Branch. Feel free to come at any time during the hour our materials will be out and try one or more of the activities we've prepared.

International Dot Day 2014

International Dot Day is Monday, September 15th! Come celebrate with us all next week from the 15th through the 19th of September. 

Fizz, Boom, Read: Water

Let's end the summer with a splash by exploring water! We're lucky here in Quincy that we have so much water in our city. Take a walk down Wollaston Beach and see if you can figure out if the tide is coming in or going out (hint: look for wet sand beyond the water) and how high the tide gets. Or look around Black's Creek and see what animals are hanging around the water there. Then head home and try some watery activities.
