The Jefferson County Library System will be hosting Suzanne Bloom author of the children’s book The Bus for Us. On Friday, April, 26th the Mengle Memorial Library (Brockway) will host the author at 9 am; Rebecca Arthurs Memorial Library (Brookville) will host the author at 11 am; and the DuBois Public Library will host the author at 3 pm. This program will last approximately one hour. Please arrive a few minutes early so that the programs may start on time.
Over the years Suzanne’s books have received a lot of recognition. A Splendid Friend, Indeed was the 2007 Pennsylvania One Book, Every Young Child selection, a Theodore Seuss Geisel Honor book and ALA Notable book. It also appeared on the 2012 short list for best picture books published in the UK. Texas 2x2 selected A Splendid Friend, Indeed in 2006 and A Mighty Fine Time Machine in 2010. Bloom’s book The Bus for Us has been chosen as this year’s book for Pennsylvania’s One Book, Every Young Child program.
In The Bus for Us, Tess is excited. Today is her first day of school and her very first ride on a school bus. Waiting at the bus stop with her older brother Gus, Tess eagerly asks, "Is this the bus for us, Gus?" as each vehicle passes by. From fire engine to front loader, Suzanne Bloom introduces young readers to a variety of vehicles through a simple text and spirited illustrations.
For the eighth consecutive year, the “PA One Book” program will lead the way and highlight the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers ages 3 to 6. Through this program, adults with preschoolers in their lives will learn how they can support the development of literacy in preschool children.
For more information on this event call the Mengle Memorial Library at 814-265-8245; Rebecca M. Arthurs Memorial Library at 814-849-5512; or the DuBois Public Library at 814-371-5930. For more information on the PA One Book program go to http://www.paonebook.org/
The TumbleBookLibrary is a collection of TumbleBooks (animated, talking picture books) with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles, Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation), TumbleTV which consists of pre-set playlists of a sequence of books, Tumble Puzzles & Games, and TumbleResources for teachers and students. We also have National Geographic videos which we’ve paired with many of our non-fiction titles – perfect support for the Common Core Curriculum!
TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which we have licensed from children's book publishers and converted to the TumbleBook format.
Do you borrow e-books through the DuBois Public Library? Would you like to start? If so, we want to let you know that borrowing e-books is now easier than ever! The program that we are using, Overdrive Downloads, has upgrading their system. When you click on the link through our website, take a few minutes to watch the video at the very top of the screen titled “Discover the New Generation experience.” The website is now much more user-friendly and easier to navigate. The new format also allows anyone with a library card to log in and read a book using their internet browser. Save the book to your favorites and you can read it offline too! This means that you don’t need to download additional software or even own an e-reader. Simply click the ‘Read (In Your Browser)’ button and enjoy!
For those of you that own e-readers and are familiar with our past system, don’t panic. The video shows you just how easy browsing and checking has become. The new Overdrive system allows you to use multiple devices to read one book. If you are sitting at your computer enjoying your newly checked out e-book, but it’s time to visit the doctor, just grab your e-reader as you go out the door and keep reading while sitting in the waiting room.
With the new set-up you no longer have to click on the book title to see if it is currently checked out. When you see the title, just check for the small book icon in the upper right corner of the displayed book cover. If it is black then the book is available for check out. A gray icon means it is checked out, but you can still put a reserve on the book. Once you find your book(s), checking out is much simpler with the new one-click check out feature. And when your loan time is up, the book automatically expires so that you never have to worry about late fees.
Have you ever browsed through the e-books trying to find a book that catches your eye? Did you sit there wishing for a recommendation? Your wish has now been granted! The updated system has a link to your personal recommendations based on the titles you have browsed, checked out, and included on your wish list.
Please let us know if you need help borrowing e-books. We are more than happy to help you and show you how to navigate the new system. You can also have your questions answered by going to the help page (located at the top) where you will find frequently asked questions, additional resources, and a link to contact support by e-mail or phone.
