FERRIS PUBLIC LIBRARY: More than books (May 10, 2018)


By Kathy Harrington

The Ferris Public Library’s Summer Reading Club will begin on Wednesday, June 13, at 11 a.m. We will be meeting at Mutz Park to watch a demonstration by Southwest Dairy Farmers. We have a great schedule of performers booked this year, a little something for everyone! You may come by the library to register your child/children for the 2018 Summer Reading Club.

Tony Padilla, Cheri Hawley, Delia Casarez, and Polly Padilla did a wonderful job overseeing the City of Ferris’ Election, thank you for your service.

Game Time is held weekly every Tuesday in the Aubrey Trussell Memorial Meeting Room from 3:30 – 5:30. Children ages 7 – 17 are invited to play electronic games on the Wii and PS4.

Story Time is hosted at the Ferris Public Library each Wednesday at 11 a.m. All pre-school youngsters and their caregivers are invited to join Mrs. Irma as she reads stories. Afterwards the children can enjoy a craft or other activity. Refreshments are served and each child gets to choose a prize from the Treasure Chest to take home.

New Books: “Sweet Vengence” by Fern Michaels, “The Disappeared” by C.J. Box, “Dominated” by Maya Banks, “Plum Tea Crazy” by Laura Childs, “Sometimes I Lie” by Alice Feeney, “Alternate Side” by Anna Quindlen, “Dealing With Mental Illness” (Dewey 616) by Rodney Cannon, and “PTSD: How to Help” (Dewey 616) by Gina Borgenson.

Fun Holiday: May 9 is National School Nurse Day, a day to celebrate and thank all the school nurses that take care of children when they are at school. School nurses are one of the first lines of medical professionals to ensure the health and mental well-being of children and young adults. They also help to ensure that their lives outside the school are safe and healthy. To celebrate thank your school nurse or help your child write a thank you card. Did you know that nurses walk an average of four to five miles a day, almost twice what the average American walks daily?
