Book Title Poetry: An Exercise
Have you ever thought of making poetry out of book titles? It’s a fun exercise that flexes the muscles of your imagination while inadvertently pointing the way to many interesting books to read! Lets give it a shot. Here are a few I threw together from books from our Fiction catalog. Feel free to submit your own and I will add them here! (more after the Read More).
Animal Champions: Caring for Our Pets
The New Hampshire Humane Society was kind enough to offer a five week course teaching children about animal care here at the Meredith Public Library. Throughout the program, the little students learned about the Humane Society's 5 pillars of animal care – Food, Shelter, Exercise, Medical Care, and (of course) Love. For instance, they learned about the types of foods that dogs and cats can eat, and those that they shouldn't, and discussed why different types of pets make sense for your family based on your living situations (apartment, house, young children, allergies, etc).
Dr. Siobhan Bach discussed her life as veterinarian and examined Pemi the Leonberger, one of our animal visitors. Our friendly pet visitors were one of the most popular aspect of the program, which helped put a friendly face on the importance of animal care. We met Pemi the Leonberger, Crackers the Parrot, Pom Pom the Guinea Pig, Molly the Lab, and many other friendly animals!
Thanks to the New Hampshire Humane Society, many children will be on the forefront of taken very good care of their pets with a new awareness.
Today was a special visit from Santa's significant other, Mrs. Claus. She read and sang songs to the children. Featuring: Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner and How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas? by Jane Yolen (both of which are in our collection)!
She then spread the Christmas cheer through song with tunes such as "Jingle Bells."
