Graphic Novels for All Ages

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that graphic novels “don’t count” or that they aren’t “real books”. Many people look down on the genre, assuming that it’s somehow less than in comparison to the more traditional novel. But. There are so many good reasons to pick up this style of book and encourage others to do so as well! For one, they’re great for visual learners. They help to develop the ability to read between the lines, also known as inference, as well as contain high level vocabulary. Let’s face it, in this modern world there are many different kinds of literacy, and graphic novels are a great way to learn and hone these skills. 

 

 

Learn About 3D Printing!

With the holidays going on, our 3D printing orientations have been a little less consistent lately. However, The Evelyn Meador Library is proud to say that that has changed now. We'll be back on schedule with orientations on January 26th and February 9th at 2:00.

These sessions are open to all ages. The orientation session will introduce participants to 3D printing in the library, with information on where the county's 3D printers are, how to sign up to use them, how to create 3D projects, and how the printers work. Those completing the class will be able to schedule time on the 3D printer to print your 3D objects.

The Best Books I Read Last Year (Non-Fiction Edition)

I told you guys that these next two blogs were going to be purely self-indulgent. I'm turning “books I like” into a workable (worthwhile is still under debate) theme, and we're rolling forward into non-fiction. These are the books I read and loved this year. I’m not saying they’re the best of the best, but they’re the stories that stuck with me and now I’m sharing them with you. I've got some for all ages, and maybe even interests, here, from picture books all the way up to adult.
