Book That Shaped Me sponsored by the Library of Congress

Books have the power to shape us by changing the way we think and feel. Think about a book that made a difference in your life. Did it change the way you see yourself? Your family? A classmate? The world?
The Book that Shaped Me Writing Contest, sponsored by the Library of Congress, challenges rising fifth- and sixth-graders to write a one-page essay about how the book had an impact on their life. Last year, a Woodridge Library patron wrote: "To me a good book is like bacon, the thicker the better." This year, this quote is featured on the contest's promotional bookmarks!

Starting July 15

Woodridge Library is happy to announce a learn-to-build-your-own-website class for kids this summer starting July 15.
Technology and the Internet continues to dramatically shape every area of our society: from how we work, to how we talk, to how we relax and even to how we think. Discovering the basic building blocks that are underneath them can be an empowering and eye-opening experience. Plus, kids can learn important reasoning, logic and communication skills.
'Artemis Fowl' by Eoin Colfer
Published on Friday, March 8, 2013
If St. Patrick's Day inspires you to get into the Irish spirit, try the adventurous Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer.
Artemis is a criminal mastermind, evil genius, and yet only a 12-year-old Irish boy. He attempts to regain his family's fortune in this fast paced thriller.
His plan? Kidnap a fairy of course and hold out for the handsome ransom of fairy gold. Artemis has got his work cut out for himself, however. The fairy world has just as much high technology weaponry and covert mission experience to rival any super power in the mortal world. Plus, fairies have magic.
