Looking for a good read this summer? Until July 9th the e-book Red Berries, White Clouds, Blue Sky will be available to check out from our e-book site, Overdrive. This historical fiction chapter book is set 1942 in California. The main character is Tomi Itano, 12, a second-generation Japanese American who lives with her family on their strawberry farm following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. How will things change for Tomi and her family when Japanese people are suddenly thought of as the enemy? Read together with friends and family–there are an unlimited number of copies and many topics for discussion!
Congratulations to the hard-working students in Ms. Winebrenner’s class at Waynedale Elementary School! With the help of their Study Connection volunteer, Angela Hudson, they wrote and illustrated their very own book. Entitled Kindergarten A to Z, its purpose is to help in-coming kindergarten students know the ins-and-outs of being a kindergartener.
To celebrate their accomplishment, they held a party at the Main Library, complete with a behind-the-scenes tour of the library and, of course, cake! In addition to the school’s library, each location of the Allen County Public Library will be receiving a copy of the book for its collection, so even more people will be able to enjoy this wonderful collaboration.
To learn more, watch 21Alive/NBC33’s newscast of the event.
Look at this great way to share your love for the library and the Summer Reading Program!
