The Library Lines
BY NIKKI CUNNINGHAM
The Carroll County Library has a few exciting events coming up over the next few weeks starting with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Saturday on April 22 at 10:30 a.m.
For the April 22 STEAM Saturday we will celebrate Earth Day with an Earth Day project.
Coming up Wednesday, April 26th at 10:30 a.m., the Carroll County Humane Society is bringing kittens to our Tot Time Story Hour! Our birth through pre-school aged “tots” can learn all about cats and kittens with Mrs. Kelli, so bring your little one in to enjoy the fun and develop early literacy skills as well as school readiness skills.
Our last event of the month will be a book signing on Saturday, April 29th from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Local author Rita Kitchen of Nashville will be on hand promoting her new book, A Mother’s Prayers.
A Christian and mother, Kitchen believes in the power of prayer and hopes to make a difference in other people’s lives through her writing. Kitchen will read a few excerpts from her book as well as sign copies that will be available. This book signing comes just in time for Mother’s Day and makes a great gift for all of the mothers in your life. A Mother’s Prayers comprise a book of prayers to guide mothers during various stages of the mother-and-child relationship.
There are multiple benefits to providing STEAM programming to the children in the community. STEAM programs increase science literacy while creating critical thinkers and a generation of innovators. STEAM occupations are growing at a rate of 17-percent and STEAM degree holders have a higher income than those with a non-STEAM degree.
After a brief hiatus the Carroll County Library is again offering the Jackson Sun daily newspaper.
The Library always offers the McKenzie Banner and Carroll Newsleader but was unable to provide the Jackson Sun for a few months. The Library is the perfect place to catch up on local news, so come spend some time with us!
