April is National Poetry Month! before your mind starts conjuring up sonnets and Shakespeare, remember Dr. Seuss and Mother Goose. There are many books of poems on display at the Alliance Public Library. Everything from the "Classics" to Baxter Black (Cowboy philosopher and Syndicated columnist). Take a look, broaden your horizons, what you discover just might surprise you.
This week, April 18 through April 24, is National Volunteer Week. Volunteerism does not necessarily have to involve an organization. It could be helping a neighbor or just around the house. Be creative and try to think of unique ways to help.....it might shock your parents! The library has many books on volunteerism. If you are stumped for ideas try checking these books out. One simple act: discovering the power of generosity by Debbie Macomber or Survival guide for coaching youth softball by Robert Benson.
There are two movies coming out, another remake of Robin Hood and Ironman II. If you find these interesting and want to learn more about theses characters, the Alliance Public Library has books and/or graffic novels on both subjects.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQChwpjrcMw and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNQowwwwYa0 .
