Springdale Public Librarians Trudy Hill and Vilma Martinez will present a series of special programs called The Mosaic Book Club. The Mosaic Book Club’s objective can be summed up by its motto, ‘I’ll Read to You, You’ll Read to Me.’ The club meetings will be a time for families to come together through the sharing of books and reading. It’s another exciting opportunity for the Library to better serve our diverse community. This club will benefit parents who aren’t sure how to best to read to their children and working parents who may struggle to find time to read to their children.
The Springdale Public Library’s Mosaic Book Club will offer tips on how to make reading a fun and exciting experience for both parents and children. At club meetings, parents will learn how to select books and keep their children engaged and enthusiastic during reading time. It will also give parents the tools for building a personal library for their children.
The program is part of a national program El Día de los Niños/El Día de los Libros (Children’s Day/Book Day) founded in 1996 by children’s author Pat Mora. Ms. Mora was a special guest at the Springdale Public Library during our Hispanic Heritage Celebration in October 11, 2012. The goals of El Día are to nurture literacy skills in ways that embrace a child’s home language and culture, and to promote library collections and programs that reflect diversity. The Springdale Public Library is one of twelve libraries to receive El Día Mini-Grants for $5000 .00 from the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), which is a division of the American Library Association (ALA). This grant was funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, a generous supporter of public library programming.
The Springdale Public Library is excited to present Art in the Park, a regularly rotating series of exhibits featuring local artists. Stop by the Library to enjoy works by Springdale and Northwest Arkansas artists, and sign up for our email newsletter for updates and artist biographies!
