I just read “The Totally Interactive Keyboard Bible” by Steve Lodder. This is an incredible resource for any piano or keyboard player. This set is appropriate for all levels of players. It starts right at the beginning with how to read music and progress from there well into advanced intermediate material.
It covers many styles with exercises and example.
These new dvd’s are flying off the shelves. But, don’t despair. Grab one of the International Documentary bookmarks we created, or check our catalog under the subject Documentary Films (all subdivided by language) to place some holds. And they all have English subtitles!
Get together with other kids and talk about a fantastic book. Online registration begins February 5 or February 7. After you’re registered, visit the Children’s Information Desk to check out a copy of the book. Please register for only one book club per month.

Hey kids! Thorndyke here. After watching the library happenings for over 15 years, I’m glad they’ve finally given me a voice. ‘Cause nobody knows more about this library than me, except for maybe Miss Kristen and Mrs. Havenstein-Coughlin, but they go home at night. I tell you, I have the best life—sitting by the birthday wall, watching the kids come for storytime and summer reading. And the librarians are some of my best friends! They have a pretty fun job. So next time you’re at the library, stop by and wave hello. I’ll be looking for you!Bear Hugs!
