Kitsap Farmers Markets Opening Weekend

Spring is finally here! Now is the time for planting seeds. If digging in the dirt isn't your thing, what about supporting our local economy? Local farmers grow amazing food in our neck of the woods. You can meet many of them at farmer's markets around the county, almost every day of the week!  Two markets open this weekend, with others to follow shortly after.

Below is a list of local markets with their dates and times courtesy of their websites. 

What's My Source?

Many afternoons you'll find students doing homework and research projects at home or at the library. Librarians love to help students navigate through all the information they find on the Internet, especially in finding current, relevant, and accurate sources. With all the information available on the Internet, it can be challenging to make sure what you've found online is a reliable source for a project. 

Why STEM?

We have many STEM programs throughout the fall this year. You'll find kids in the library building K'NEX bridges, designing video games, bird-watching, and participating in numerous additional programs helping develop science, technology, engineering, and math skills.                                              

#greatimmigrants

There will be barbecues, parades, and lots of fireworks this weekend. If you're looking for stories of awesome Americans, every July 4th the philanthropic foundation Carnegie Corporation of New York honors Great Immigrants. This year 42 amazing Americans were honored with this award. These judges, educators, journalists, and more are truly inspiring citizens. To hear some of their stories, you can follow the #greatimmigrants hashtag on Twitter and Facebook. 

#BlackHistoryMonth Reads

If you're looking for Black History Month reads this February, there's some great web resources out there! One of my new favorites is using the hashtag #1000BlackGirlBooks, which should lead you to the story of Marley Dias. Dias is an 11 year old frustrated at not seeing black girls as characters in books she's assigned at school. She decided to do a book drive collecting 1000 books where black girls are the main character.
