REGISTRATION FOR CHILDCARE ONLY.

For parents/caregivers of children ages 0-5 (pre-Kindergarten) who will be attending Parenting Class #1, childcare will be available at the library in the children's area for those who find it difficult to secure childcare for their little ones. Children will be well taken care of by an adult staff person and two teen volunteers. Space is limited to no more than 12 registrants, so sign up early for the childcare option.

 

   3:00 PM  -  4:00 PM The MAGIC YEARS Parenting Workshop: Handling Stress & Understanding Child Development*  
    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   gail.brown@voorpl.org
   

As a parent/caregiver of a preschooler, do you ever feel that stress is inhibiting your abilities as a parent or that you do not quite know the basics of early child development? The Cornell Cooperative Extension will offer an educational program that will help parents/caregivers understand how stress affects them, their children, and influences their parenting. Parents/caregivers will also understand why they need to know about child development and how they can play a crucial role in nurturing developmental skills in their children.

The crucial time before a child enters kindergarten is often referred to as the Magic Years (ages 0-4). Research reports that 90% of a child’s brain development happens before age five. As a parent/caregiver of a young child, these early child-rearing years can be exciting and joyful, but also demanding and overwhelming. The Cornell Cooperative Extension and the Capital District Child Care Council will be offering a series of one-hour classes that address some of the important issues for parents/caregivers of children in the Magic Years: Handling Stress & Understanding Child Development, Setting Routines, Parenting Styles & Discipline Tools, Brain Building and the Power of Play, and Sensory Play.

Feel free to register for all or some of these classes.

For parents/caregivers of children ages 0-5 (pre-Kindergarten). On-site childcare in the children’s area of the library will be available for children ages 18 months to 5 years (register early – maximum number of registrants will be no more than 12). If you need childcare, please click on the corresponding ON-SITE CHILDCARE program information above and register each of your children.

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc.  New members are welcome to join the group for any title they are interested in reading. 

At the height of World War II, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was home to 75,000 residents, and consumed more electricity than New York City, yet it was shrouded in such secrecy that it did not appear on any map. Thousands of civilians, many of them young women from small towns across the U.S., were recruited to this secret city, enticed by the promise of solid wages and war-ending work. What were they actually doing there? Very few knew. The purpose of this mysterious government project was kept a secret from the outside world and from the majority of the residents themselves. Some wondered why, despite the constant work and round-the-clock activity in this makeshift town, did no tangible product of any kind ever seem to leave its guarded gates? The women who kept this town running would find out at the end of the war, when Oak Ridge’s secret was revealed and changed the world forever.

Registration is requested.

You can purchase a copy of the book for $5 at the reference desk or request a library copy here.

Everyone knows there are different kinds of teachers: the boring ones, the mean ones, the ones who try too hard, the ones who stopped trying long ago, the ones you’ll never remember, and the ones you want to forget. Ms. Bixby is none of these. She’s the sort of teacher who makes you feel like school is worthwhile and who recognizes something in you that sometimes you don’t even see in yourself. Ms. Bixby is one of a kind. Topher, Brand, and Steve know this better than anyone. When Ms. Bixby unexpectedly announces that she won’t be able to finish the school year, they come up with a risky plan to give Ms. Bixby the last day she deserves. Through the three very different stories they tell, we begin to understand what Ms. Bixby means to each of them and what the three of them mean to each other.

 

We are excited to have the author, John David Anderson, visit us virtually via Skype! He will be joining us after the potluck dinner. Bring a dish to share. Beverages and dessert provided. For children in grades 4-6 and their parents. Please register and pick up a book at the Information Desk. The Library will be closed except for book discussion participants.

From the beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning author--now in the fiftieth year of her remarkable career--a brilliantly observed, joyful and wrenching, funny and true new novel that reveals, as only she can, the very nature of a family's life. "It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon." This is the way Abby Whitshank always begins the story of how she fell in love with Red that day in July 1959. The whole family--their two daughters and two sons, their grandchildren, even their faithful old dog--is on the porch, listening contentedly as Abby tells the tale they have heard so many times before. And yet this gathering is different too: Abby and Red are growing older, and decisions must be made about how best to look after them, and the fate of thehouse so lovingly built by Red's father. Brimming with the luminous insight, humor, and compassion that are Anne Tyler's hallmarks, this capacious novel takes us across three generations of the Whitshanks, their shared stories and long-held secrets, all the unguarded and richly lived moments that combine to define who and what they are as a family"--

   9:45 AM  -  10:30 AM Totally Toddler Storytime  
    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   kids@voorpl.org
   

With a combination of traditional preschool storytime and lots of movement and participation games, your active toddler will learn through play as he/she starts the transition to becoming a "big kid." This program is appropriate for children ages 2-3 who have aged out of Babygarten, but are looking for a slightly more structured program that allows for their short attention spans and need for activity. Storytime will be followed by playtime. 

If Voorheesville Schools are closed or delayed by two hours, our morning children’s programs will be cancelled.

    Location: Library Community Room
   10:45 AM  -  11:15 AM Babygarten

Stories, rhymes, music and playtime for little ones newborn up to 24 months. The program includes our amazing age-appropriate toy collection. Babygarten gives parents and caregivers an opportunity to bring their babies to a program just for them.  Join Miss Amy for songs, fingerplays and fun! Older siblings are welcome, but the program is geared for babies.

If Voorheesville Schools are closed or delayed by two hours, our morning children’s programs will be cancelled.

The Dragonet Prophecy by Tui T. Sutherland

Sixth grader, Jason Zeliph, will be facilitating a peer led book discussion of the first book in one of his favorite series “Wings of Fire.” Clay and his friends have grown up under a mountain, secretly raised by the Talons of Peace to fulfill a mysterious prophecy. The five young dragons are destined to end the war that's been raging between the tribes of Pyrrhia, but how they'll do this, none of them knows. Not every dragonet wants a destiny. When one of their own is threatened, Clay and his friends decide to escape. Maybe they can break free and end the war at the same time or maybe they'll risk everything!

The evening will begin with a pizza dinner (pizza, beverages and dessert provided by the library). Join Jason for an exciting evening of food, discussion, book-related activities, and fun. Please register and pick up a copy of the book at the Information Desk.

   9:45 AM  -  10:30 AM Totally Toddler Storytime  
    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   kids@voorpl.org
   

With a combination of traditional preschool storytime and lots of movement and participation games, your active toddler will learn through play as he/she starts the transition to becoming a "big kid." This program is appropriate for children ages 2-3 who have aged out of Babygarten, but are looking for a slightly more structured program that allows for their short attention spans and need for activity. Storytime will be followed by playtime. 

If Voorheesville Schools are closed or delayed by two hours, our morning children’s programs will be cancelled.

    Location: Library Community Room
   10:45 AM  -  11:15 AM Babygarten

Stories, rhymes, music and playtime for little ones newborn up to 24 months. The program includes our amazing age-appropriate toy collection. Babygarten gives parents and caregivers an opportunity to bring their babies to a program just for them.  Join Miss Amy for songs, fingerplays and fun! Older siblings are welcome, but the program is geared for babies.

If Voorheesville Schools are closed or delayed by two hours, our morning children’s programs will be cancelled.

The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Paterson

Eight grader, Krista Rivers, and her mother, Patricia, will be facilitating our next mother/daughter book discussion using the award-winning book, The Great Gilly Hopkins, which has just been recently made into a major motion picture. Eleven-year-old Gilly has been stuck in more foster families than she can remember, and she's disliked them all. She has a reputation for being brash, brilliant, and completely unmanageable, and that's the way she likes it! When she's sent to live with the Trotters, by far the strangest family yet, she knows it's only a temporary problem. Gilly decides to put her sharp mind to work and she’s determined to no longer be a foster kid. Before long, Gilly has devised an elaborate scheme to get her real mother to come rescue her. Unfortunately, the plan doesn't work out quite as she hoped.

A potluck dinner will begin at 6:00, please bring a dish to share. The discussion will start after dinner and the evening will conclude with a showing of the movie. Beverages and dessert provided by the Library. Join Krista and her mother for an exciting evening. Grades 6-8 with a mother, aunt, or grandmother are invited to register and pick up a copy of the book at the Information Desk. 

The library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families.

A gifted architect reluctantly begins a secret life devising ingenious hiding places for Jews in Nazi-occupied Paris

Like most gentiles in Nazi-occupied Paris, architect Lucien Bernard has little empathy for the Jews. So when a wealthy industrialist offers him a large sum of money to devise secret hiding places for Jews, Lucien struggles with the choice of risking his life for a cause he doesn't really believe in. Ultimately he can't resist the challenge and begins designing expertly concealed hiding spaces--behind a painting, within a column, or inside a drainpipe--detecting possibilities invisible to the average eye. But when one of his clever hiding spaces fails horribly and the immense suffering of Jews becomes incredibly personal, he can no longer deny reality.

Written by an expert whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every life the architect tries to save.

"College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Iverson is a dying Vietnam veteran--and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home, after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder. As Joe writes about Carl's life, especially Carl's valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict. Joe, along with his skeptical female neighbor, throws himself into uncovering the truth, but he is hamstrung in his efforts by having to deal with his dangerously dysfunctional mother, the guilt of leaving his autistic brother vulnerable, and a haunting childhood memory. Thread by thread, Joe unravels the tapestry of Carl's conviction. But by the time Joe discovers the truth, it is too late to escape the fallout"-

"Katharine Wright embodied the worldly, independent, and self-fulfilled New Woman of the early twentieth century, yet she remained in many ways a Victorian. Torn between duty and love, she agonized for months before making a devastating break with her world-famous and intensely possessive older brother Orville to marry newspaper editor Harry Haskell, the man she loved. Written by the grandson of Harry Haskell, Maiden Flight is imaginatively reconstructed from personal letters, newspaper reports, and other documents of the period--in particular, Katharine's lively and extraordinarily revealing love letters to Harry. Above all, the book celebrates Katharine's abundant store of what she called "human nature"--her lively and perceptive outlook on life, her great capacity for both love and indignation, and her acute and sometimes crippling self-awareness"--

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In this “enjoyable, fast-paced tale” (The Economist), master historian David McCullough “shows as never before how two Ohio boys from a remarkable family taught the world to fly” (The Washington Post)and “captures the marvel of what the Wrights accomplished” (The Wall Street Journal). He draws on the extensive Wright family papers to profile not only the brothers but their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them. Essential reading, this is “a story of timeless importance, told with uncommon empathy and fluency…about what might be the most astonishing feat mankind has ever accomplished…The Wright Brothers soars” (The New York Times Book Review).
