Stiefvater's ability to bring us back to the story so quickly is much appreciated since so much developed in book two, and the wait was so long for book three. With an additional book to go in this series, don't expect too much resolution yet. We are introduced to a few new characters that we have only heard about and there are some major plot developments.
Using basic geometric principles and concepts families will be able to design and create their own "stained glass" works of art with tissue paper.
Using images and inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright, families can see how shapes and symmetry are the guidelines for design and execution.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library hosts Family Fun Time every Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Children's Department. These programs are designed for all ages.
A successful writer shares the how and why of a research blog
A NaNoWriMo Event!
Have you been planning to write that great American novel, but find that you are always losing track of your notes? Help is on the way. On Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m., a successful writer will demonstrate how to create a research blog and discuss its uses for the aspiring writer. Use of Google tools for file organization and manuscript development will also be addressed.
Learn the basics of audio storytelling! The workshop will consist of two one-hour classes meeting once a week for two consecutive weeks in the Digital Commons.
We encourage every student to come to each class, as the information will be cumulative. By the end of the course, every participant will produce a short piece to share with the DC Public Library community.

Participate in this year’s Letters About Literature writing competition to answer that question. Students, grades 4 – 12, write a letter to an author of a work that left a lasting impression to explain how their views were changed by the work.
