Did you miss our Houses and Homes Storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions to inspire a storytime you can do at home.

From Storytime

Home by Carson Ellis

A whimsical tribute to the myriad possibilities of home depicts homes in different real-world environments as well as fantastical settings.

Bilingual Storytime Series

Early child research shows that bilingual children have an edge in development. Speaking two languages benefits children’s overall learning, marked by larger vocabularies, flexible problem-solving skills, and higher-level cognitive abilities. Bilingual learning also supports a set of mental skills that allow children to thrive academically, regulate emotions, and grow into mentally healthier adults.

Join us as we share books, rhymes and songs that will help foster an appreciation of our wonderful multicultural community and language. Activities presented will be geared to children between the ages of 0-5 years old.

December 14 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in French and English. 

December 27 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in Spanish and English.

Research has shown that music improves our health and bonds us together. Music is magical in all of its forms and there are few things better in life than enjoying live music with the ones you love. With that in mind, we are very pleased to announce the line up for our 3rd annual Family Music Fest on Saturday, October 14.

10:00AM - Beverly Meyer - The Music Lady: Beverly Meyer has been creating music for over twenty years. Thru her craft, “The Music Lady” has been capturing the attention and imagination of young people by creating engaging and interactive songs and inspiring kids to be a part of their musical world. For younger patrons and their families.

11:30AM - To Sangana: Out of the Black Theater and Dance program at Wayne State University, To Sangana (meaning “coming together”) celebrates the rich cultural traditions from African heritage as well as the contemporary African-American experience. Expect a visually stunning performance of a constant rhythmical journey featuring dance, music and vocals. For all ages! This performance is sponsored by VIBE CREDIT UNION.

2:00PM - The Old Adage: Siblings Mimi and Nino have been playing music together for a long time. In 2012, they made in official by naming The Old Adage. This DIY-pop group out of Detroit blends radio pop with electronic music to create interesting, infectious and dancey pop songs. For all ages!

4: 00PM - The Moxie Strings: This awesome band offers listeners the unique opportunity to experience some of the world’s best-known instruments (violin and electronic cello) through a young, progressive lens. Backed up by their musical degrees, Diane Ladio and Alison Lynn, compose the majority of their pieces and arrange melodies from many traditions, resulting in a genre-blurring blend of ear-catching melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms.

Whether you are celebrating Ramadan this season or simply want to teach your children more about this Muslim holiday, CPL has a number of wonderful books for you to take home. 

Ramandan is celebrated in the ninth month in the calendar used for Muslim holidays. This year Ramadan falls during summer which is the most challenging season to fast. The days are very long and hot. Muslims fast from sun up to sun down in order to understand how the poor feel when they go hungry. The beginning and ending of Ramadan is marked by the crescent moon, and this is why many children's books feature moons on the cover or in the title! 

Lailah's Lunchbox by Reem Faruqi

Now that she is ten, Lailah is delighted that she can fast during the month of Ramadan like her family and her friends in Abu Dhabi, but finding a way to explain to her teacher and classmates in Atlanta is a challenge until she gets some good advice from the librarian, Mrs. Scrabble.

Curious George celebrates Ramadan with his friend Kareem by sampling special treats, making baskets to donate to the needy, and searching for the crescent moon.
