Public libraries are a gateway to success for children of all ages, says Nicholson Public Library Director Rhonda O’Keeffe.
“Studies show that children who read have better vocabulary, creative and comprehension skills essential for success later in life,” she said. “In addition to print books, you can access e-books, e-magazines, e-audio books, and DVDs. All are free with your PINES library card. Stop by the Harold S. Swindle Public Library (Nicholson ) or any other public library in Piedmont today or register online.”
New children’s books available at the Harold S. Swindle Public Library: “Mirabel’s Discovery”, “Vampires Don’t Wear Polka Dots”, “Tiny and the 100th Day of School”, “Reach for a Peach”, “The Pug Who Wanted to be a unicorn”, “Here comes Kate Bishop”, “Hawkeye”, “Here comes Ms. Marvel”, “Wash your hands”, “What is a habitat?”, “Snoopy goes to the school”, “This is Spider-Man,” “How are animals grouped?”, “How are plants pollinated?”, “How do we use light?”, “Magic Tree House Survival Guide”, “The Mary Celeste Ghost Ship”, “The Greedy Gremlin”, “Deadly Race to the South Pole”, “Disney Princess Phonic”, “Doomed Search…Lost City of Z” and many more.
