grandmachildIn 1978, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed National Grandparents' Day would be celebrated annually, the first Sunday after Labor Day, thanks to the advocacy efforts of Ms. Marian McQuade.  A West Virginia home-maker, Ms. McQuade wanted to honor the undervalued, lonely elderly and to encourage grandchildren to appreciate and the wisdom and heritage of their grandparents.

All grandparents (or other senior friends) are cordially invited to come create a bit of family history and join their grandchildren for our special program in honor of Grandparents' Day. During our time together, we will read stories that focus on unique and caring grandparents, sing and move to several songs, complete a fact-finding activity to share what we qualities we cherish and have in common with our beloved grand-friends.

Iowa Postcard

In September the Rosedale Book Club will be traveling to Iowa through Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead.  Pick up a copy of the book and join the discussion at Rosedale library.

 Picture of the cover of GileadAbout the book:
 John Ames, a 76 year old  preacher, has lived almost all of his life in Gilead, Iowa. He is writing a letter to his almost seven-year-old son, the blessing of his second marriage. It is a summing-up, an apologia, a consideration of his life. The reason for the letter is Ames's failing health. He wants to leave an account of himself for this son who will never really know him. His greatest regret is that he hasn't much to leave them, in worldly terms. Ames writes of his father and grandfather, estranged over his grandfather's departure for Kansas to march for abolition and his father's lifelong pacifism. The tension between them, their love for each other and their inability to bridge the chasm of their beliefs is a constant source of rumination for John Ames.
