Revisit Our “Books & Baskets” Event

Books and Baskets LogoFans who donated a new or gently used children’s books received a free reserved seat ticket on last night’s basketball game. Those who missed the event may revisit it by viewing these selected photos.

The event known as “Books & Baskets” takes place annually. The books will be sold at the Feburary 2006 Famous-Barr Used Book Sale–another of the Book Fest’s pre-event activities–and the proceeds will help fund the Book Fest.

Last night, WKU Basketball Team played against Bellarmine. Big Red was on hand at Gates 1 and 4 to meet and greet fans before the game.

This annual event is sponsored by Charles M. Moore Insurance Agency and the partners of the Southern Kentucky Book Fest.

New video: FISH! Catch the energy, release the potential!

We now have the extremely popular FISH! video for use in classes whether corporate communications, organizational psychology, business classes, etc. This video shows employees how to generate the energy needed for a high-morale work environment. It highlights four main concepts: play, make their day, be there, and choose your attitude. Also portrays the playful atmosphere necessary for creativity to flourish, as embodied by the World Famous Pike Place Fish Market of Seattle, Washington. On reserve at the Main Library Circulation desk, ask for VR2375.

Veteran’s Day @ the ERC: BookBlog…

Here are some titles housed at the ERC (366 Tate Page Hall) for elementary, middle, and high school readers to remember Veteran’s Day:

The Car, by Gary Paulsen. A teenager left on his own travels west in a kit car he built himself, and along the way picks up two Vietnam veterans, who take him on an eye-opening journey.

Remember D-Day, by Ronald J. Drez. Photos, timeline, memorabilia, and informative text make this a bold introduction for elementary and middle school students.

Sentries, by Gary Paulsen. The common theme of nuclear disaster and human vulnerability interweaves the lives of four young people, an Ojibway Indian, an illegal Mexican migrant worker, a rock musician, and a sheep rancher’s daughter with the lives of three veterans of past wars.

Those Extraordinary Women of World War I, by Karen Zeinart. More text, fewer illustrations do not detract from this book honoring the efforts and contributions of women to the 20th century’s most devastating war.

Veterans Day: Remembering Our War Heroes, by Elaine Landau. This easy chapter book is filled with pictures and short, descriptive text. Good for new readers learning about America’s veterans.
