Ladybug Books 2019

Every year, children in grades pre K-3 all across NH are able to cast their vote for the state’s esteemed Ladybug Picture Book Award.  All 10 books are available at the Jackson Public Library, and we encourage folks of all ages to come and read them! This year’s selection consists of the following books:

Their website explains, “The Ladybug Picture Book Award is a program of the Center for the Book at the New Hampshire State Library and is designed to promote early literacy and honor the best in recent children’s picture books. A committee of children’s librarians from around the state selects 10 picture book titles each spring. Then, during November, New Hampshire children from preschoolers to those in third grade choose the award winner. The winning picture book is announced at the end of the year.”  

In October, Jackson’s K-3 students enjoyed all 10 books and voted for their favorites.  These results have been passed along to the State Library to count in the final tally. We are inviting everyone to come and read these gems and vote in-house for what we will recognize as the Jackson Ladybug Award.  While these votes won’t count towards the state-wide results, we will recognize our local Jackson winner later in December.  Voting needs to be completed by December 13th. Anyone who participates (including the K-3 kids who have already voted) is eligible for a super cool ladybug sticker!   

Trivia spots still open!

We have three fantastic teams signed up for trivia, but there’s plenty of room for more. Edith and Bob deliver excellent fun every time. Strangers always leave as friends. Please join us tomorrow. Saturday, November 2nd at 3pm.

Halloween Fun

Stop in at the library as part of your Halloween festivities on Thursday. We’ll have trick-or-treating, a themed craft table, a spooky, glow in the dark, book on the Rec Trail (bring a flashlight!), or if it’s too wet out, you can curl up with one of our many terrific Halloween stories inside. There will also be plenty of glow sticks to share. Happy Halloween!
