2014 ALA Youth Media Awards

The 2014 Newbery and Caldecott Medals have been announced, along with the winners and honors recipients for all of the many other awards the American Library Association gives out each year.

Award winners for younger readers:

Phoenix Book Club - January 2014

Instead of a theme this month, everyone read both The Mysteries of Harris Burdick and at least one story from The Chronicles of Harris Burdick, then came up with an idea for a story based on one of the illustrations. While a couple of the group's members had done something similar before for school, not everyone had, and those who'd done it before picked new illustrations to be inspired by. The great thing about The Mysteries of Harris Burdick is that there are so many different pictures and so many different directions to go with them.

Mad Science - Magnets!

Feel the pull of magnetism in January with our two Mad Science programs for kids.

Phoenix Book Club - December 2013

Graphic Novels

Mad Science - Chemystery

Coming up in December we have another set of Mad Science programs, one for 3-5 year olds and one for 6-10 year olds. Both of this coming month's programs will be on unlocking the mysteries of chemistry. You might remember chemistry from high school or college, but chemistry is all around us and you can do some fun chemistry activities at home! Bake a cake and you've not only done some chemistry but you've got a treat to eat when you're done.

Phoenix Book Club - November 2013

Ghost Stories

Mad Science - Dinosaurs!

With the start of a new school year comes a return of our monthly Mad Science workshops on the third Saturdays of each month. This year, however, we're running two workshops: One for children ages 6-10 and now one for children ages 3-5, because science can be fun for all ages!

Spooky Magic!

International Dot Day

Celebrate the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds and the power of creativity. Sunday, September 15th is International Dot Day but we have had too many ideas to limit our celebration to just one day so children of all ages are invited to celebrate circles and dots with us all month long at all Thomas Crane Public Library locations.

As you enter the main library from the parking lot take a few minutes to read The Dot, posted on the children’s room windows, as you walk along the covered walkway.
