Did you know that New Hampshire has four separate Readers' Choice Awards for young people? And voting for three of the four awards takes place across New Hampshire every April.
April is National Poetry Month! Celebrate by enjoying poetry with the kids in your life. We are doing all we can to bring kids and poetry together.
We've highlighted some of our favorite books in a special display in the Youth Department. We have a poetry tree that you can add to by either writing a poem of your own or transcribing a favorite poem.
On Thursday, April 29, 2010 we will be doing a special activity for Poem in Your Pocket Day. And we are sponsoring a Visual Poetry Photo Contest for teens.
Recently, a committee of children's librarians from around the state met and selected the 10 picture book titles that will make up the 2010 Ladbybug Picture Book Award Short List. The award, sponsored by the Center for the Book at the New Hampshire State Library, is designed to promote early literacy and honor the best in recent children's picture books. Look for these books in the Keene Public Library's Youth Department.
