Kid Lit Coffee Break
Sunday, September 23, 2018 at 3 p.m.

Adults who love children's literature get a chance to relax and talk about books with me (Miss Katie Jane).  We'll also get to sample coffee, cookies, and brownies from East 59, the café in the library.  And there will be door prizes!  No RSVP needed.  Just follow the stars.

Not enough time in day?  Too much to do?  This program is just for you!  I'm talking about our upcoming Adulting 101: Time Management class on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.  Wendy, our teen librarian, will introduce you to a few time management techniques that will make you more efficient.  This program is for teens 13+.  We'd like to know just how many people plan to come, so go ahead and sign up online.  You can also call us at 444-7826.

It's tough to be a parent.  Hoover Public Library has an excellent collection of books to help you navigate raising your child, but our parenting collection isn't the only thing we offer.  We are starting a new program series called Practical Parenting.  This series will provide useful information and strategies for dealing with everyday problems from early childhood through the teen years. You'll get practical answers to practical questions.  The speakers are local health care professionals and UAB doctoral students in clinical psychology.  Our first Practical Parenting session will be Monday, September 10, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.  The theme will be Don't Lose Sleep Over Bedtime.  Children commonly have trouble sleeping—-whether falling asleep or sleeping in their own beds. We’ll talk about ways parents can improve their children’s sleep.  There is no need to register to be part of this session.  Simply follow the stars through the Kid Zone to the Youth Program Room.
