Treating People with Kindness

Let’s talk about kindness. There’s a lot of negativity being thrown around these days, and sometimes it’s hard to be empathetic and keep your head up. But, as the old adage says, it cost nothing to be kind. It’s not easy, I’m well aware--it takes courage to be kind in the face of everything the world may throw at you and, sometimes, we need a little help remembering how. So, here are a few titles, for the youngest all the way up to the oldest, to help us remember that, even when things seem insurmountable, a little bit of kindness can go a very long way.

Native American Heritage Month

November is Native American Heritage Month- a time to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. This month is also a great oppurtunity to "educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges" (National Congress of American Indians). That being said, I've gathered a mix of titles for children, teens, and adults that explore these ideas and are perfect reads for not just this month, but year round.

The Evelyn Meador Library is excited to announce that the we will be taking part in the Artificial Intelligence World Challenge this November. This is a fantastic program where families will be able to come and work on problem solving challenges with robotics and AI technology. This program is for families with children from 3rd to 8th grade and requires NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE.

To make it even better, this program has a ton of perks to go along with it. We will provide snacks for every session, you will experienced advisors at each session, and a lucky family has a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Silicon Valley. Even better, this is an opportunity for parents to come practice STEM with their kids, helping open up opportunities for them in the future.

(Not Too) Spooky Reads for Kids

Last week we covered some super spooky reads for teens and adults and, I know, not everyone’s about that scared-silly life, especially the little ones. So, as Halloween creeps ever closer, and if you’ve been requested to read a scary (but not too scary) book for bedtime, don’t worry: I’ve got your back. Here are sixteen books, eight picture books and eight chapter/middle grade titles perfect for that ever so slightly spooky story time.
