Blog, News and Happenings

I have worked at the Hoover Public Library for 20 years.  And the I Survived series by Lauren Tarshis has been super popular for the last half of my career here.  Ten years, people!  Tarshis recently released the 19th title --The Great Molasses Flood, 1919.  She also published a graphic novel adaptation of the first book in the series -- The Sinking of the Titanic, 1912.  The Bonus Borrows Collection from Hoopla features seven of the audiobooks.  Take a listen then use these stories to begin researching the events they fictionalize.  The official website has tons of bonus content to help you get started. 

Our Homeschool Hub is on hiatus.  Hopefully we’ll be able to partner with America's First Credit Union again in the near future for their Money Matters Workshop.  In the meantime, use these resources to learn more about money.

Our pre-COVID schedule for today included a dinosaur-themed Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead with The Science Lady, Jan Mattingly. She is amazing, and her dinosaur exploration would have been mind-blowing.  This blog is a poor substitute, I know, but I hope it gives you at least one STEAM activity that you want to tackle.
