This month the library started the summer reading program. The theme is Build a Better World. It is for children 5-12 years old, and it runs from 10-11:30 every Thursday morning.

So far we have had a great turnout, with 25-35 kids each week coming to learn ways to make this world a better place to live. They get to learn through reading, making arts and crafts, and playing games. They got to watch Meghan Casey of Rocky Mountain Puppets put on a fun show on how to build a better you. This program will run until July 6 where on that day we will have a fun day. There will be bubble soccer, a barbecue with hot dogs and chips, and we will give out prizes for the children who were our big readers. We hope to see you there!

In other news, starting on July 1, we will have new items in our EBSCO interface. Some include new content added to databases we already have. New ones include novelist K-8, where you can look up books for kids of those grade levels. It can give suggestions based on what kids like in a book. There is also environment complete, where you can research all things pertaining to the earth. Finally, we have MyHeritage, an ancestry database where you can look up your family tree. They have more than 6 billion historical records from the United States, Europe, Latin America, and other regions. There are many records you can search through including immigration, citizenship, military, and gravestone just to name a few. You will be able to do this for free by either coming into the library, and clicking on the EBSCO icon, or you can go to our website www.fowlercolorado.com/library.html. You then click on the EBSCO link and it will then ask you to enter your library card number. If you don’t have one, or you forgot your number, you can call us at 263-4472 and we can get you access.

Don’t forget we have Rosetta Stone available as well on the EBSCO interface. We hope you enjoy these new features that are available at the library, as well as from your own home. Please call if you have any questions
