Welcome to Northeast Library's blog series, Your Friday Five!

Each week, the children's and teen staff will round up five of their favorite resources and reads around a certain topic. This Friday, we are highlighting great artist biographies.

A few weeks ago, during our Wacky Wednesdays program, we played a handful of fun art-based games such as Art iSpy and Roll a Dice Picasscohead. I noticed that in the biography section (Juv 92) we've got a healthy handful of great picturebooks about famous artists. Here are a few of my top choices:

Welcome to the Northeast Library blog series, Your Friday Five! Each week, the children's and teen staff will round up five of their favorite resources and reads around a certain topic. This Friday, we are highlighting great audiobooks for kids and teens available for download.

Got a long drive, walk, bus ride or metro ride to school? Contrary to what Belle from Beauty in the Beast taught us, walking with our nose in books can be dangerous. So try a captivating audiobook instead.

Battling Bullies

Published on Friday, September 5, 2014

Welcome to the new Northeast Library blog series, Your Friday Five! Each week, the children's and teen staff will round up five of their favorite resources and reads around a certain topic.

This Friday, we are highlighting bullying. With school back in session, it's important to shed a light on bullying in its various forms. Children and teens need to recognize the signs of bullying, know that it is not something to be tolerated, and feel comfortable talking to their peers and adults about bullying.

I've come up with five great resources on bullying, bullying prevention, enabling and more.

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.

3d printing collageThis summer the Northeast Library and MLK's Digital Commons collaborated on a 3-D printing class for kids and teens. At the first class on July 31 we learned about different kinds of 3-D printing and what kind of things 3-D printers make now and what they could make in the future. Next we used a free program called Tinkercad.com to upload a few digital models of objects we found on the Thingaverse website.

Popular and Classic Easy Reader Read Alikes

Published on Monday, August 11, 2014

Welcome to the Northeast Library blog series, Your Friday Five! Each week, the children's and teen staff will round up five of their favorite resources and reads around a certain topic. This Friday, we are taking a look at some classic and popular easy readers series and matching them with new series. 

Great easy readers series are gobbled up like ice cream by voracious new readers. Easy readers have simple vocabulary, sentences, and plots paired with very explanatory illustrations and lots of white space for young eyes learning to focus. Little ones read them many at a time which often leaves lots of whole series gone at a particular time. Fear not, here is a handy list:
