Strokes Of Genius Ends With Art Show

The 2017 fall session of Strokes of Genius at the Lakewood Public Library recently came to a close as participating second, third, and fourth graders proudly showcased their talent at an art show for family and friends. Each week students learned about the life and work of a different artist and then completed an art project in the style of that artist. Artwork created by Pierre Auguste Renoir, Leonardo da Vinci, Frederic Remington, Diego Rivera, Maya Lin, and Jackson Pollock provided the inspiration for the students’ creative efforts. Watercolor paints, oil pastels, markers, clay, and tempera were some of the art mediums used. Each participant took home their creative work and a certificate. Look for information about our spring session of Strokes of Genius in the Lakewood Public Library’s Spring/Summer Program Guide.

This Land Is Your Land: Family Story Times About Diversity

Lakewood Public Library is launching an exciting new story time series this fall, This Land is Your Land: Family Story Times about Diversity. This story time is open to families with children ages 0-8, but ALL are welcome! The goal is to promote an inclusive community by creating a safe space for children and families to learn and discuss current issues through story time. Topics for this fall and winter include differently-abled people, LGBTQ+ people, gender identity, immigrant and refugee rights, and racial equality. Research suggests biases may form at a much earlier age than previously thought, sometimes as early as three years old. Literature is a wonderful way to introduce topics of diversity to children in a way that is developmentally appropriate and fun! Each month will focus on a different social justice issue through age-appropriate books, songs and a craft or activity at the end.

Girls Who Code Club

Technology is developing and expanding at a rate more rapid than at any other time in history. One might assume that the tech savvy youth who are highly immersed in a world that is practically half digital would be heavily focused on the whats, hows, and whys of that world’s inner workings. To some extent many are, but there is an issue regarding technological education that has fallen through the cracks; one which a national fellowship program has chosen to make its focus. Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. The problem is that tech jobs are among the fastest growing in the country, yet girls are being left behind. While interest in computer science ebbs over time, the biggest drop off happens between the ages of 13-17. Data shows that 66% of female students between the ages of 6-12 show interest or are enrolled in computer programming classes, but that number drops to 32% in the 13-17 age range and to an even more drastic 4% among college freshman. By 2020, there will be 1.4 million jobs available in computing related fields. US graduates are on track to fill 29% of those jobs. Women are on track to fill just 3%.

With the help of rovers and satellites, scientists now believe the red planet, Mars, may have the answer. Mars and Earth have approximately the same land mass. In addition, there are signs of ice on Mars. NASA is working hard to see if there is any chance of life on our red neighbor.

Come to the Library and be amazed as you witness her inflating tiny bubbles, long bubbles, giant bubbles, and a remarkable square bubble. The feat that is sure to draw the most enthusiastic response involves a small wading pool filled with a special concoction of soap, water, and glycerin and a hula hoop with a handle.
