1000 Books Before Kindergarten - Ongoing

Any child ages birth to five years can participate.
Traditionally children are enrolled in the program by an adult that lives in the same household, or that spends part of their day with them.

The Woodbury Public Library is encouraging grandparents to participate in the program. Reading to your grandchild, in person or via video chat, is a
rewarding way to nurture an intergenerational relationship.

Participants are given a log to track the books they read.  For every 100 books read, a sticker and book is awarded. Once 1,000 books are read, in addition to the sticker and book, the child is given a gift certificate to shop at the Book Cellar.

If you need guidance on how to have a video chat with your grandchild, Reference and Technology Librarian Ron Fairchild is available, by appointment, to guide you through the process. To schedule an appointment or for more information about 1,000 Book Before Kindergarten, please call the library at 203-263-3502.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is generously supported by The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library.

Woodbury: a Town with Unusual Names REPEAT PERFORMANCE

Join award-winning historian Susan Shepard for an entertaining look at the unusual names of places in Woodbury and the history behind them.  

In this virtual event find out why, for example, was Woodbury’s Hazel Plain district once known as “Hell Hollow” and what popular walking area was dubbed “Dirty Slough” in colonial days?  Learn where the “Ram Pit” was and what was it used for.  The history that interests Susan most is digging out and documenting the forgotten history of everyday people, starting with Woodbury in 1672, and how the area towns got not just their wonderful historical features but the peculiar things that happened along the way to help shape the towns we know today. 

If you attended the first one, there will be more information about other strange names about places in the Town.  Bring your questions!

Your Aura and Senses: Virtual Event with Sydney Sherman

Acclaimed Metaphysical Author, Sydney Sherman, author of You Are Not Alone: Our Loved Ones Are Here…You’re Just Not Listening returns to help us Understand our Aura & Senses

Learn to use your senses, i.e. smell, hearing, sight and touch to connect with their loved ones. The presentation progresses from a very detailed explanation of the “how” our loved ones are still here and explores how we can tune-in to their presence and communicate with them after they have died. The study of Thanatology, or the afterlife, offers scientific approaches to how each sense works, and how we can be taught to pick up the clues from the afterlife. How can knowing your aura improve your life? Sydney Sherman discusses the study of auras, and how knowing details about your personal aura can drastically change your life. She will identify the different colors of auras and explain what distinct personality traits and characteristics can be attributed to these colors. How can your aura color identify illnesses, stress, emotional disturbances … even cancer? How can the energies from others affect your aura negatively or positively? This presentation is jam packed with information and very interactive.

Please register and Zoom link will be emailed to you.

The Teen Diversity Book Club: When Stars Are Scattered

TEENS! Join a monthly book group that celebrates diversity through great literature! Created for readers in grades 8 -12, the group will meet monthly via Zoom.  The second book in the discussion series is When Stars Are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson and Omar Mohamed.  When Stars Are Scattered is a National Book Award Finalist; honors also include the Schneider Family Book Award Middle School Honor, YALSA Great Graphic Novel for Teens, YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Nominee, Amazon Best Children’s Book of 2020, New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book, TIME Best Book of the Year, School Library Journal Best Book of 2020, Kirkus Best Children’s Book of 2020, NYPL Best Book for Kids, NPR's Book Concierge Pick, Jane Addams Children's Book Award Finalist, and a 2021 Children’s Africana Book Award Honor Book.

Omar Mohamed was only four years old when he fled to a Kenyan refugee camp from war-torn Somalia with only his little brother in tow. Accompanied with Victoria Jamieson’s brilliant graphic artwork, When Stars Are Scattered is a remarkable true account of Omar’s childhood growing up in the camp, raising his little brother and dreaming of a better life for them both. A heartbreaking, hopeful, eye-opening must-read for all ages.

Omar and his younger brother, Hassan, have spent most of their lives in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya. Life is hard there: never enough food, achingly dull, and without access to the medical care Omar knows his nonverbal brother needs. So when Omar has the opportunity to go to school, he knows it might be a chance to change their future . . . but it would also mean leaving his brother, the only family member he has left, every day.  Heartbreak, hope, and gentle humor exist together in this graphic novel about a childhood spent waiting, and a young man who is able to create a sense of family and home in the most difficult of settings.

There are a limited amount of FREE copies of the book; register and recieve yours!  A Zoom link will be emailed to you prior to the first meeting.

The Teen Diversity Book Club: Genesis Begins Again

TEENS! Join a monthly book group that celebrates diversity through great literature! Created for readers in grades 8-12, the group will meet monthly via Zoom.  The next book in the discussion series is Genesis Begins Again by Alicia D. Williams.  Genesis Begins Again is a Newbery and Kirkus Prize honor winner, a William C. Morris Award finalist, and the winner of the Coretta Scott King - John Steptoe Award for New Talent.  

There are ninety-six reasons why thirteen-year-old Genesis dislikes herself. She knows the exact number because she keeps a list:
-Because her family is always being put out of their house.
-Because her dad has a gambling problem. And maybe a drinking problem too.
-Because Genesis knows this is all her fault.
-Because she wasn’t born looking like Mama.
-Because she is too black.

Genesis is determined to fix her family, and she’s willing to try anything to do so…even if it means harming herself in the process. But when Genesis starts to find a thing or two she actually likes about herself, she discovers that changing her own attitude is the first step in helping change others. 

There are a limited amount of FREE copies of the book; register and recieve yours!  A Zoom link will be emailed to you prior to the first meeting.
