Meet Miss Melanie at Main Library!

"One of my favorite children's authors is Molly Bang.  I like her take on Environmentalism."

"My favorite subject in school was Humanities taught by Phil Pearson in 9th grade at Shelby Sr. High.  That's where I first learned about the great artists and writers.  I still love Impressionism to this day because of that class."



Miss Melanie would like to recommend these juvenile audiobooks!

A Long Way from Chicago by Richard Peck
Read by Ron McLarty; 4 hours, 17 minutes
Recommended for ages 9 & up


A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck
Read by Lois Smith; 3 hours, 24 minutes
Recommended for ages 9 & up

These books are good to listen to in succession because they have the same characters and are about two siblings during the depression who go to visit their grandmother for the summers.  Families may be able to draw comparisons from the Great Depression to the recession of today.  It would make for interesting conversation on a long car trip.  Enjoyed by families with children ages 9 and up.

Thursday, October 16 @ 6:30 PM for Where in the World: Map Mania; and
