Starry Skies and Fireflies in the Friendship Garden
Have you discovered The Friendship Garden series by Jenny Meyerhoff? I was just thinking about it because the newest book in the series came out this month, and its title goes along with the Story Lab I'm doing this afternoon at 4 p.m.
Starry Skies and Fireflies
The fifth book in the Friendship Garden series finds Anna and her friends sleeping under the stars in the garden’s first-ever urban campout!
Calling all campers! The Friendship Garden is having a summer sleepover under the stars! Get ready for: 1. Ooey, gooey s’mores 2. Toasty camp fires 3. Ghosts?? Anna is excited for an end-of-summer party with her friends, but she is NOT excited for creepy stories. Anna doesn’t like the dark…or being scared! But her buddies at the Friendship Garden want to tell ghost stories and play scary games! And Anna doesn’t want to look like a ‘fraidy cat, so she decides that she’ll just skip the party instead. Can Anna’s friends convince her that being scared is sometimes fun? Or will she miss out on the Friendship Garden’s party of the year?
Get Ready to Float Your Boat
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, February 28, 2017. It is a very important date here at Hoover Library. First of all, it's my birthday! But, more importantly, it's the date of our next Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead event. We'll be focusing on Engineering this time as we construct boats out of various materials and sail them to capture treasure. You'll have a chance to test the buoyancy of lots of materials before you spend your "money" to get all the supplies you need to build your boat. Then, the ultimate test -- can your vessel safely convey pennies across the water? If you want to be let on deck at 4 p.m., you need to be 5-11 years old AND on our crew list. You can sign up online or by phone (444-7830).
