This week a committee of representatives from Franklin County Library System and Franklin County Historical Society began planning the 2009 community reading celebration, Franklin County Reads...Two Men Against Slavery, commemorating Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry. By April featured books will be on sale at area libraries, and we hope to have a very special speaker for you in the fall.
Please stay tuned to this website and blog for more information as plans unfold. There will be reading materials for the whole family, as usual.

St. Thomas Library just received a great new book, Amazing Arctic & Antarctic Projects You Can Build Yourself. The call number is J 919.8 Va. If you are doing programs for children, you may want to take a look and the great ideas inside, like Northern Lights Picture, Ice Core Sample, Flying Snowy Owl, and the Inuit Game. There are also great short informational chapters on polar topics.

If you are a preschool or primary teacher, librarian, or child care provider the committee will have a selection of related craft activities available for fall. Please check the "Wilderness Log" for more information on where to pick up a booklet of those ideas.
Thanks to Family Literacy and the Scouts for developing and collecting
the children's craft ideas.
