November Amnesty Was a Great Success!

More than THIRTY kids and teens are now able to check books out again after our special amnesty month! And we have this wonderful stash to help South County fill their shelves for the holiday season. We will leave the display up for a week or so, to see if anyone would like to add to the pile before we take it all over to South County. Thank you very much to everyone who gave so generously, and WELCOME BACK to the kids and teens who came in for amnesty!

More Changes at the Vicksburg District Library

  kristy

Goodbye Kristy!

The Vicksburg District Library wants to extend a heartfelt thank you and reluctant Good-bye to Ms. Kristy Zeluff, our incomparable children’s librarian and Assistant Director. Ms. Kristy has accepted a position as Assistant Director at the Parchment Community Library, and will leave Vicksburg at the end of December. During her time at Vicksburg, Ms. Kristy has created wonderful, stimulating story times for the littlest residents of the Vicksburg community, presided over immensely fun Summer Reading Programs that brought hundreds of children into the library to read, play, and even make slime! Ms. Kristy has also worked hard to improve the experience of library users by taking on important projects, such as a complete overhaul of our website. Most of all, Ms. Kristy has been a consistently warm, friendly, enthusiastic face that library users from zero to 100 look for when they visit us. We will miss her very much, but are very happy for the Parchment community and excited to see all the things this wonderful librarian will accomplish there.

 

Website Showcase: Goodreads.com

Looking for inspiration on what to read next? Need a way to keep track of what you have read — and what you would like to read — that doesn’t involve random scraps of paper in various pockets? Check out goodreads.com. Through goodreads.com, “Users can sign up and register books to generate library catalogs and reading lists. They can also create their own groups of book suggestions and discussions.” (Wikipedia, 2013)

Goodreads.com is easy to use, and a great way to grow your reading community and “need to read” list.

If you need help with the site, stop on in and we’ll be happy to help.

This month’s book club pick:
