Dockside Book Shop, as an independent, local book seller, is now proud to be a part of the American Booksellers Association (ABA) initiative known as IndieBound, opening a new e-book shop online. Through IndieBound, local book sellers can offer their customers a variety of literature in electronic form (e-books). With the continued use of various devices to read books electronically such as iPods, Kindles, Nooks, and even personal computers, e-books have grown in popularity in a very short time. All are invited to create a new account and begin browsing!
The Friends of the St. Thomas Public Libraries (FOSTPL) invite you to join ILoveLibraries.org, the American Library Association's (ALA's) website for the public, designed to keep America informed about what's happening in today's libraries, which are found in public, school, academic, corporate and institutional settings.
The Day Care Literacy Project was started in 2004 with monies donated by Penny and Henry Fuerzeig, who are committed to the concept that most of what children learn is learned before they are four years old. They are supporting programs that make that period of a child's development as rich and stimulating as possible. Volunteers take packets of books to a day care center and read at least two books to the children, emphasizing child participation, verbalization and dramatic reading. The first goal, of course, is to engage the children and make books interesting and exciting. The secondary goal is to model for the teachers so they too can involve the children with books. - New update, December, 2012 submitted by Program Director Carol Lotz-Felix
