The spotlight this month is on SOUPS, just in time for cool fall weather!

Attendees are asked to bring a prepared dish to share with those present. If you are planning to attend please bring or send the recipe in early so we can have copies for everyone. We have so much fun eating, sharing, and talking, we hope you will join us! The library will provide table service and drinks. Please remember to bring a serving utensil for your dish.

to the dogs 001September is for the dogs! That is what we concluded after looking on our favorite Holidays website for what to do with this month. September Is: Responsible Dog Owners Month, National Guide Dog Month and National Service Dog Month. September 20-26 is National Dog Week, the 21-27th is Deaf Dog Awareness Week. Puppy Mill Awareness Day is September 20th. With that in mind, we pulled just about all the books about dogs we can find in the Library to celebrate!! to the dogs 002  to the dogs 004 to the dogs 005 to the dogs 006to the dogs 003

Our first Coloring & Conversation night brought 7 people together to share thoughts and ideas on adults only coloring. We had such a good time we decided to do this on a regular basis. The second Monday of the month is now set aside for Coloring & Conversation at the Library. We will have pencils, crayons and gel pens and coloring sheets available. Or you can bring your own. The fun will begin at 7:00 and remember, this is for adults only!

1000books2Still thinking about enrolling your little one in our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten? There is no better time than now!

Any and everyone can read to your preschooler and all you have to do is make a tally mark on the bright green paper. Once there are 100 tallies, bring the paper in to the Library to move the car down the track and your child picks a prize. You can read 1,000 different books or one book 1,000 times. Remember, those tally marks are verification, so don’t forget to bring in some proof of how many books you’ve read! Get everyone involved! Sign up today, it will go a lot faster than you think!

How long does it take to read 1,000 books? Well, someone, somewhere figured it out for us: 1 book per day for 3 years = 1,000 books; 10 books per week for 2 years = 1,040 books; 3 books per day for 1 year = 1,095 books. So, not long at all!

MangoThe 6 most popular languages people are learning in Mango Languages are Spanish (Latin America), French, English, Japanese, Russian and Pirate (for those traveling to the Caribbean?). But you are not limited to those six, there are 70 languages overall to choose from. Mango makes it easy, once you open an account, by tracking your activities and progress.

If you want to learn a few phrases before traveling out of the country give Mango a try. If you are visiting from another country, Mango can help improve your English. You decide how much time to devote to it, you decide when to hold your ‘classes’. Give it a try for free through the State Library of Kansas! Click on the link below

Spring has sprung and so has the chance for severe weather. As a reminder our policy for severe weather is that if the tornado sirens sound we will lock the doors and patrons will be escorted to the basement for shelter. If a patron chooses he/she may leave the building before the doors are locked. Parents please talk with your children about tornado warnings and our policy before sending them to the library.  If you have any questions about our weather policy please visit with the librarian.
