Boy! I've seen a lot of you here at the library the last couple of days. As you can see from this picture, I was working hard on my reading for Connect-Your-Summer today. I like to do my reading under a tree. It's a good thing we have one here in the library! Do you ever read under trees? I finally figured out what badge LB and I can earn next. It's called the Adventurer Badge! This badge is perfect for LB, because he's always having adventures! Based on the books I'm reading, can you figure out where his next adventure will be? You'll have to keep watching to see if you guess right! And don't forget to tell me what you're doing to earn your Connect Your Summer badges too! I love reading about them!
Note: This program has been canceled.Have you heard about Pecha Kucha (pronounced "pa-chok-cha")? From the Japanese word meaning "chit chat" — because it's quick. The phrase is the namesake for an interesting presentation style: slideshow presentations of 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each (for a total of 6 minutes, 40 seconds). See the Canton Public Library staff Pecha Kucha as an example.
On July 27th at 7:00PM, CPL will host a Pecha Kucha and you could be one of our 15 presenters! Just fill out the application below by 9:00PM on July 13th:

I'm super excited because I just earned my very first Connect Your Summer Badge! I told you that LB and I signed up as team, right? Well. We just got our very first badge... the Multicultural Badge. And it came with a nifty little star on it because we shared what we did with all of you! I read a book called Zoo-Ology by Joelle Jolivet. It's a big huge book (you can see it in my last blog post) with really neat pictures in it. And I learned a little bit about all the different animal cultures that are different than me. LB decided he would study People Culture, so he visited the Canton Historical Society. They have lots of neat stuff there. And LB got to sign his name in the guestbook (he has very nice handwriting) and put a pin on the map where he lives. He brought back lots of pictures to show me, and it sure looks like he had fun!
Boy we both had super lots of fun. We can't wait to earn our next badge! I need some ideas though... What have you done to earn yours? Can't wait to hear all about it!
Did you sign up for Connect Your Summer yet? LB and I did today! We are going to tackle it as a team. As you can see, I'm getting a start on my reading for my Multicultural Badge. And LB is off on a little adventure to fulfill another criteria for the badge. That's how we split it up. I really like to read, so I'm going to do all the reading. But I can't really leave the library. That's where LB comes in. He's going to take care of all the off-library-campus activities for me so we can earn badges. It's going to be so much fun! and I've already learned a lot! I can't wait to log into my account and read about all the fun and exciting books you've read and the activities you've participated in too! So don't forget to tell me all about what you're doing over on the Connect Your Summer page!
