Mother-Daughter Book Club Meets April 21

Frog Princess Book Cover

Registration is now open for our mother-daughter book group  to take place on Thursday April 21 at 7 pm.

Girls ages 8-12 and their mothers, or another caring adult, are invited to participate in a lively book discussion, create a fun craft, and meet new friends. Refreshments will be served.

The group will read The Frog Princess, by E. D. Baker. After reluctantly kissing a frog,awkward, fourteen-year-old Princess Emeralda suddenly finds herself a frog, too, and sets off with the prince to seek the means–and the self-confidence–to become human again.  Although the Disney movie by the same name is loosely based on the premise of this novel, they are two very different stories – this is a wonderful, must-read book.

Registration forms and copies of the book are available at the library front desk.  Participants must register no later than April 16.  For more information call 226-2335.

Fun with Math & Science

Fun with Math & Science logo

The American Falls Library will host a free one-hour workshop, “Fun with Math & Science,” for families with preschool-age children Wednesday March 23 at 10:30 a.m.

Young children are natural explorers. There are lots of things parents can do to help them build science and math skills. The workshop will feature fun hands-on stations and information to share with parents and children.  Each family will take home a free copy of The Everything Kids’ Science Experiments Book.

There’s no charge for the workshop, but please register early, as space is limited.  Come to the library, or call Debbie or Marianne 226-2335.

Funding for this project is made possible by the Idaho Commission for Libraries’ Read to Me program, and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under a provision of the Library Services and Technology Act.
