CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK - The library will be celebrating Children's Book Week from April 30 - May 6. This year’s slogan is “One World, Many Stories.” Celebrate reading and books with your children. We would hope that all the parents of children living in the greater Smithfield community would bring their children to the library and introduce them to the world of books. Give your children a head start as they face the challenges of an informational and technological society.

 

CHILDREN'S DISPLAY CASE – The Children’s Room display case is featuring an interesting collection of Stuffed Orangutans. The display was organized and developed by Bryce Gillis and we thank him for loaning it to the library. Bryce started collecting his orangutans as a child and he will soon be going off to college. Bryce wants to share his love for this animal and help to keep them from going extinct. They are an endangered species, so it is important for everyone to learn about this wonderful animal. The orangutan is Bryce’s favorite animal and he hopes you enjoy his collection.

 

CHILDREN'S DISPLAY CASE - The library is always interested in having children show their collections in the exhibit case. Please see the Children's/Young Adult Librarian in order to sign up for this terrific opportunity.

POP ART PORTRAITS- Tuesday, May 29, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Join us as we look at Art by the famous artist Roy Lichtenstein, whose art has inspired many who followed him. His technique involved using small dots to create colors. This method is the same used in early pulp comic books from the earlier days. Roy’s pop art includes captions, speed bubbles, and onomatopoeias such as POW! and WHAM!  We will be creating portraits in the style of Lichtenstein using several types of art supplies. You will have the opportunity to make a portrait that will make you look like you just jumped out of the pages of a comic book. You can check out Lichtenstein’s work at http://www.lichtensteinfoundation.org/. Registration is required.

SCREEN-FREE WEEK (FORMERLY TV TURN-OFF WEEK) – APRIL 30 TO MAY 6, 2018 – The annual national celebration where children, families, schools, and communities turn off TV, video games, computers, and hand-held devices and turn on life. Turn off the television, pick up your favorite reading material, and let your neurons fantasize and create symbolic images that no silver screen can ever produce. Instead of relying on screens for entertainment, play, read, daydream, explore nature, and enjoy spending time with family and friends. This event is presented by the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood, and endorsed by many organizations, including American Public Health Association, the National Head Start Association, KaBOOM!, the National Coalition for Promoting Physical Activity and the US Play Coalition.

NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN DOLLS AND POTTERY DISPLAY - This month’s display was left to the library by beloved staff member H. Joanne Wodziak.
