Featured Children's Book

JacketThis month we are celebrating Women's History month and featuring an inspirational biography - The First Girl Scout: The Life of Juliette Gordon Low. Ms. Low created the first national organization for girls of all backgrounds that was years ahead of its time.  Her controversial group encouraged girls to prepare not only for traditional homemaking but also for roles as professional women.  Be inspired by an inspiring woman who thought little girls were capable of big things!

All families and caregivers are encouraged to read at least 1000 books with their young children before they enter Kindergarten. Reading to preschool-age children builds vocabulary, language skills, and helps prepare them for Kindergarten. Families can build the skills needed for future success. Ask your children's librarian for more information.
