Pre-School Story Time - Thursdays at 10:15 a.m.
Story time from September through June will be provided by Linda Blair
The primary goal for our children, middle-grade and young adult sections is to include authors who possess excellent literary credentials and who use their skills to write timely, engrossing novels that will enrich readers’ lives, by providing insights and awarenesses of the world in which they live.
We have a strong historical fiction section, which deals with themes of early life in America, exploration, social issues, politics, war, economy, nature, science and much more.
All topics may well be the foundation for an adult historical fiction novel.
Junior Picture Books:
We have a specially developed section of Junior Picture Books.
These books are large format, beautifully illustrated books that treat more mature concepts and sophisticated story development, while using images to enhance and reinforce the themes of the books.
There are many historical fiction books included in this collection.
Our selection is up-to-date and extensive. Nature and history are heavily accessed by students, and we provide handy on-line links as well.
