Reader's Theater a huge success!

IMG_0078The ELPL's first-ever Reader's Theater was a huge success!  Thanks to the help of 2010 Michigan Teacher of the Year Rob Stephenson and his family, and our own Miss Karrie, participants were invited to act out some favorite stories.  Jan Thomas was the winning author - her stories lend themselves to being silly, having fun and lots of expressive reading!  Rebecca and Ed Emberley's Chicken Little was a hit as well.  Plan to be a part of our next Reader's Theater on Tuesday, August 7, 10:30-11:30 in the North Foyer Meeting Room.  Families welcome!

A parent attending Reader's Theater with his children shot some great video footage of the program - check them out:

According to the National Archives and Records Administration's Library Information Center, Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record. The President of the United States has signed a proclamation proclaiming a national observance during that week every year since1925.
