Educator Workshop with Jim Gill
Union Twp. Branch
Saturday, Sep. 27, 10-12
Register Online or call (513)528-1744.
Educators are invited to a very special workshop presented by Jim Gill!  Mr. Gill, a nationally acclaimed author,  musician, and child development specialist will present Music Play With Purpose. 

He'll explain the purpose behind play. Active music play provides a context for children to develop abilities, such as self-regulation, essential to school success. Jim’s clever word play and rhymes in the context of active movement games also provide broad opportunities for literacy development.

Educators, care providers and librarians will leave  with a repertoire of music play activities that can be put to immediate —and purposeful— use in their programs. Best of all, they leave the session understanding that play is a teaching tool that inspires, in children, agility in thought and a love of learning.

Please join us on this special day.  Everyone who attends will receive a gift and will also be eligible for drawings for prizes.  Refreshments will be served.

Constant Readers Book Club
Union Twp. Branch
Monday, Oct. 6, 6:00 p.m.
Constant Readers Boo

This month's book discussion title will be "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn. Copies of this months selection are available at the library. Adults looking for more information, can call the library at 528-1744.

Summary: "On the day of their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick's wife Amy disappears. There are signs of struggle in the house and Nick quickly becomes the prime suspect. It doesn't help that Nick hasn't been completely honest with the police and, as Amy's case drags out for weeks, more and more vilifying evidence appears against him. Nick, however, maintains his innocence. Told from alternating points of view between Nick and Amy, Gillian Flynn creates an untrustworthy world that changes chapter-to-chapter. Calling Gone Girl a psychological thriller is an understatement. As revelation after revelation unfolds, it becomes clear that the truth does not exist in the middle of Nick and Amy's points of view; in fact, the truth is far more dark, more twisted, and more creepy than you can imagine. Gone Girl is masterfully plotted from start to finish and the suspense doesn't waver for one page. It's one of those books you will feel the need to discuss immediately after finishing because the ending doesn't just come; it punches you in the gut."
