Stories in our Windows

Each month the Parklands-Turner Neighborhood Library features an exciting new story displayed in the windows. The story can be read in its entirety from outside the building - so the library does not have to be open for you to enjoy it.  Start with the Windows closes to the Subway store... and follow along to the story's conclusion. Once you are finished, come inside and grab a take-home kit or participate in a scavenger hunt based on the story. So the next time you are heading across the river to Ward 8 be sure to save a few minutes to read the story posted in the library windows and even check it out. 

Catch this month’s featured titled – Because by Mo Willems. Mo Willems, a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, composes a powerful symphony of chance, discovery, persistence, and magic in this moving tale of a young girl's journey to center stage. Illustrator Amber Ren brings Willems' music to life, conducting a stunning picture-book debut. The take home craft activity is make your own musical instrument - a tambourine and shaker and a thankful wreath.
