As part of DC's Kids Euro Festival our library had a week-long celebration of Greece. Along with a display of books on Greek cooking, culture, history and mythology, we also had a showing of Disney's Hercules. We had puppet and drawing crafts in the Children's Room during the week.
October is typically a month where you will find the library filled with ghosts and ghouls and goblins. This year is no exception in the Teen Space, where teens are working hard preparing for their Haunted Halloween Party on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 6:30 p.m. (ages 8 and older!). Scary books will be read, games will be played, and candy is sure to be plentiful!
When young Duncan, a student and budding artist, opens his desk at school one day, he doesn’t find his crayons. Instead there is a stack of letters. The letters are from his disgruntled crayons telling him that they quit. Each one has a different complaint they want Duncan to address. Red is overworked.
Have you ever eaten dirt? What about worms and ants? Doesn’t sound too appetizing, does it? Here at the Francis A. Gregory branch though, we have a few children who don’t mind a little mud. They might even say that it’s pretty yummy.
