November fun coming to library

International Falls Public Library

International Falls Public Library

The library has some fun programs planned for November.  Join us for a wonderful afternoon Thursday, November 6th at 3:30 pm with Henry Boucha, Ojibwa-Native American Olympian in a free program about his life growing up in Warroad, becoming an Olympic and NHL hockey player and how his Ojibwa roots have helped him persevere through challenges and tragedies to become a leader in raising awareness about Native American athletes today.  The program will include a display of Olympic & NHL hockey memorabilia, for ages 8 and up.

Storytime continues the first three Thursdays of November at 10:30 am with stories about “Things that Go” for two weeks, followed by Thanksgiving stories on November 20th.  Each week following storytime the library makes it preschool science toys available for children to stay and play for about 30 minutes.  There will be no storytime on Thursday, November 27th due to the library being closed for Thanksgiving.

The library will be closed on Tuesday, November 11th in observance of Veterans’ Day.  The library will be open on Monday, November 10th, but with limited access to computers, movies, paperbacks and magazines as we are getting new carpeting laid in the north half of the main floor.  We will set up a couple of computers and some movies available, but much of the collection will be unavailable Monday, November 10th while new carpeting is put down.  Thank you for putting up with our mess for a day or two.

Saturday, November 15th is International Games Day and the library will host a game day at the library from 10:30 – 2:30.  Join us for a great day of games and a pizza lunch.  This is a great opportunity for families to come and play together, learning a new game or sharing an old favorite.
The November documentary movie is “In Organic We Trust” and will be shown in the library meeting room on Monday, November 24th at 6:30pm.  "In Organic We Trust" is an eye-opening food documentary that looks beyond organic for practical solutions for me and you. Local farmer's markets, school gardens, and urban farms are revolutionizing the way we eat. Change is happening from the soil up. The movie is about 80 minutes which we’ll follow with discussion and refreshments.  Join us.

Be sure and stop by the library on Tuesdays and create.  It is crafty Tuesday and each week we will put out the supplies to create a fun project in the junior room.  Come create, check out a book or two and make the library a habit.
The library will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 27th with regular hours on both Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving. 

The American Pediatric Association says the best life preparation is to read to your children from the day they are born.  The library is ready to help with “Reading Ready” our program to reward young children every time they are read 250 books. Pick up a booklet today and read to your child.

Pictures and Pens

"Pictures and Pens – Year 3!" The library’s program to encourage both photographers and writers in their craft.  Each month we will post a theme for writers and photographers to work with. Writings of less than 1,000 words and 8x10 photographs will be accepted up to the last day of each month the library is open. A winning writing and photograph that best capture the theme will be selected with each winning entry receiving a $50 prize. After we have selected twelve photos and stories we will print them together in a small book.  Everyone is eligible to enter these contests (although if you win one month, you are not eligible the next month).  For more information, visit the library blog, or contact Diane at the library.

The October theme is 'hunting.'

Reading Ready

International Falls Public Library has launched a new program for children from birth until Kindergarten and their parents. Reading Ready seeks to help parents prepare their children to read by reading to them. The library has booklets for any interested families to pick up and fill out with the titles of books they read to their child. Every time they read 250 books to their child, the child can pick out a free book to keep and read. Your child can fill out as many of these books as they (and you) can read before they enter Kindergarten.

Reading books to your child is one of the very best preparations for them to learn to read. Studies have shown that hearing books read helps increase your child's vocabulary, ability to describe things and events, letter and print awareness and is just fun.
