DESCRIPTION / DETAILS ABOUT PROGRAM:
The challenge of successfully ushering children through their teen years has always been among parents’ hardest won achievements. But in today’s society where children seem to become adults overnight, and where they often make decisions about drugs, sexuality, and violence before they understand the consequences, a parent’s job is more important than ever. So how can you ensure that your teens develop the skills and character they need to not only survive but to thrive as they gain independence? ACTIVE PARENTING OF TEENS, a video and discussion program by parenting expert Dr. Michael Popkin, will show you how. In five sessions packed with activities, discussion, real-world examples, and feedback, you’ll learn a proven approach to parenting, plus indispensable techniques and insights for overcoming obstacles, that will bring happiness and harmony into your home. You’ll leave each session energized and motivated to make positive and realistic changes in your own family’s daily life.
LINK TO “BOOKFLIX” – Check it out!
Bookflix is an online literacy resource that pairs classic video storybooks with related nonfiction titles and is a great way to engage children and encourage nonfiction text reading. It features a read-along option for both fiction and nonfiction and develops listening and reading comprehension. Bookflix can be accessed at home, in the library, and anywhere – all you need is an Internet connection. On this web page, look for the link to Bookflix under UHLS Resources. You will need your library card #.
Be sure to check out our Local History page by clicking on the tab at the top of the page. We have added a link to a picture of the map of Meadow Lawn Cemetery. More information about the cemetery is available in a binder at the library.
Everyone welcome to Knitting Group at 3:30 PM on Wednesdays. Call us at 658-2927 if there is a better time for you to make the class. Come be part of the group either as a novice or experienced knitter. A hat made by one of our members is pictured above.
Email addresses wanted!
The library is trying to update our patron’s information with email addresses. If we have your email address, you will be sent an email notifying you of upcoming due dates on your checked out items and then an overdue notice once an item has been out too long. Please let us know your email address next time you come in. This will help you keep track of your checked out items and when they are due.
Museum Pass available
Passes are available for The Clark, MASS MoCA, Hildene The Lincoln Family Home, the Iroquois Museum, and the USS Slater.
Art In The Library
The current artist, Lindsay Cave, is a lifetime resident of Petersburgh. She works in a mixed media of painting and photography, as well as using her talents for creative decorating and home design with an interest in repurposed objects. In her current exhibit, now showing at the library, she has combined photography with the reuse of sheet rock as plaques, on which the prints are mounted. Lindsay developed a way to create “stone like” plagues out of the sheet rock by glazing and varnishing.
Stop in and see her colorful photographs displayed here at the library.
The library also has Ann Lindsay jewelry for sale (to benefit the library).
Any interested artists, who have artwork or photographs that they would like to display at the library, can call the library at 658-2927. We have wall space to display your art and would love to hear from you. There is no charge to display it here.
Book Discussion Group
The group meets at 7:00 P.M. on the second Wednesday of each month from September through June. NEXT BOOK CLUB: The Hours by Michael Cunningham on Wednesday, December 14th at 7 PM.
The books being discussed are available from the Library so you can read them prior to the meeting. New members are always welcome to join. Please join us even if you are only able to come once in a while or just want to come for the books in which you are interested.
