Mister Rogers Neighborhood Anniversary


Fred Rogers and Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood was an important part of my childhood--helping through tough times with my family and difficult learning issues at school. Today marks 51 years since the first episode was taped, and Google is celebrating the importance of Mr. Rogers to many of us, then and now, with a great tribute found on their search page, google.com.

Book Review for Nuts to You

The Library's Book Group are beginning this week, and one of our most favorite books read last year is due for a review. Nuts to You is a wonderfully whimsical novel written by Lynne Rae Perkins. This tale is a retelling of  squirrel-adventure epic told to the author by an amazingly eloquent and "Human English"-speaking squirrel. Interspersed with clever illustrations which clearly underscore the sweetness and intelligence of this story, Nuts to You is a witty, easy-to-read novel perfect for children in grades 2-4. Our readers highly recommend this great book.

The Kingston Public Library book groups for children meet as follows:

  • Wednesday Afternoon Book Group for children ages 7-10 meets every other Wednesday at 5 pm for book discussion and Readers' Theater. We are currently reading The Pop of the Bumpy Mummy by Ty Cummings
  • The Night Readers for children in the fourth and fifth grades meet the second Thursday of every month at 6:30 pm for dinner, book discussion, and craft. We try to take two or three field trips during the year. We will choose next month's book at this meeting.
  • The Phoenix Book Group for children in the sixth grade meets the third Thursday of the every month at 6:30 pm for dinner, book discussion and an activity. We also take field trips during the year. We will choose next month's book at this meeting.
