Hoot! Spring 2017 Middle Grades Movie Book Club

Bullies, burrowing owls, potty-trained alligators, a sinister pancake PR man, and several extremely poisonous snakes with unnaturally sparking tails… This is Roy Eberhardt’s  life in Florida, where being the new kid in town leads to mystery and an eco-adventure like no other.

Our Movie Book Club is recommended for children in grades 4-8. Those who register for the club by Friday, March 31 will receive a free copy of the book. We will meet at the library on Saturday, April 29 from 2:30-4:30 for a popcorn video viewing party and discussion of the book and movie. Register online below, by phone, or stop by the library.

Movie is rated PG.

L’Anse Creuse Students: Welcome to the ConnectED Initiative

ConnectED initiative logo

In order to ensure that the 4,000+ K-12 students in the Harrison Township Public Library’s (HTPL) service area have access to resources critical for success in school, the library is partnering with the L’Anse Creuse School District to ensure every student has a library card by the end of 2016. Students with a traditional library card are already set to go. Those who do not have cards will be given access by using the student’s school ID number. Cards issued this way will provide access to electronic resources, including books, magazines and music in electronic format, research databases, and internet access in the library. Participation in the program is voluntary and parents are given the chance to opt their child out at any time.
