Welcome to the Fennville District Library
SEPTEMBER 2015 NEWS
We look forward to some great programs this fall in Youth Services. Each Wednesday at 10:00 am from September 2nd through 23rd, we'll have Play Time for babies and toddlers. Lots of toys to play with, coloring, and animal crackers for snack. Then, beginning Wednesday, September 30th, our fall story time session begins. The session runs for ten weeks until early December. Our new toddler story times, called Wonderful Wednesdays, will feature one fun story, a couple of songs or rhymes, a craft or art time, and a snack. Toys will also be available to play with. Miss Karmen looks forward to seeing all the children again, as well as the local students who come for class visits.
Also in Youth Services, we have two new staff members who will assist with teen programing. Elsie will lead the teen anime club. Elsie has a passion for drawing and character creation. She grew up with anime, cartoons, and fantasy and continues to enjoy all of them. Next year, Elsie plans to attend art school to continue to develop her passion for character design/storyboarding and Broadway performance. Katie will lead a teen writing group at the library, beginning in October. Katie taught K-12 public education for twelve years and is thrilled to continue sharing a lifelong love of literature with children, teens, and parents as part of the Fennville District Library staff. Katie is currently finishing her Master of Fine Arts in writing for children and young adults through Vermont College of Fine Arts and also works as an author. Her debut teen novel, The Boy Next Door, was published by Macmillan. Katie is excited to develop programming for young writers of the library.
