Donated Books in Memory of Loved Ones at the Wakarusa Public Library

by Shondra Brown on April 20, 2015

It’s almost time for our “J-Nonfiction Challenge” in May at the Wakarusa Public Library.  Dare to accept the challenge and you may be rewarded!  Check-out and read a juvenile nonfiction book and we will give you an entry slip for our giveaway!  You may fill out one entry form at each library visit when you take home a j-nonfiction book during May 4 – 23.  A book prize pack will be awarded to a random winner on May 26. 

Book Bites will take place on April 30 (“Swirl by Swirl” by Joyce Sidman) and May 6 (“The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle), at 10:15 a.m.  Children will hear a story, and participate in either a craft or an activity related to the story. No registration is required, and all ages are welcome to attend.

Story Hour, ages 3 – 5 years old, will hear a “Bunny Tale” and participate in an activity and/or craft.    May 4 and May 5, 10:15 – 11:00 a.m., registered children will hear “My Friend Rabbit” by Eric Rohmann.  Registration is required, and this is the last event for this session.

May 12 is our School-Age Special starting at 3:30 p.m.  Join us as we paint murals for our Summer Reading Program, “Every Hero Has a Story”.  Registration is required, and paint will be used.

“Mama Seeton’s Whistle”, by Jerry Spinelli, and “If You Plant a Seed”, by Kadir Nelson, have been donated to the library in memory of Lauren Moyer by her Nana & Papa Martin.

“Blood Rubies”, by Jane K. Cleland, has been donated to the library by Joy Anderson in memory of Zuleka Anderson.

“My Own Self” is currently running on our Dial A Story Line at 862-4441.    Hear how a little boy learns, in a most unusual way, to mind his mother.
