LaPenna to lead story hour at Johnsburg Library

NORTH CREEK The Town of Johnsburg Library has announced that Judy LaPenna has volunteered to lead the Childrens Story Hour on Friday mornings at 10 a.m. She comes with a wealth of experience working with young children. LaPenna taught kindergarten in New Jersey for 32 years, after which she retired to the North Creek area with her husband, Vito. They have two sons, Daniel and Todd. She enjoys gardening, reading, working with children, and spending time with her family. LaPenna said the Johnsburg Library has a wonderful selection of books, a helpful staff, and a welcoming atmosphere. When asked, she said her favorite childrens book is Miss Rumphius by Barbara Clooney. Young children are welcome to come and experience her enthusiasm as she leads them through interesting books, fingerplays, songs, and crafts. Our last LARAC Fiber Arts program for 2008 is a silk painting workshop by Michele Gannon, Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Participants will learn the history of silk painting and leave with a finished scarf. The program is free, but space is limited. So call the library at 251-4343 to reserve a seat. New fiction books currently on the shelves for your reading pleasure include: Brisingr by Christopher Paolini, American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld, Smoke Screen by Sandra Brown, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. Hot, Flat and Crowded by Thomas L. Friedman and The War Within by Bob Woodward are two new non-fiction books. Some of our new DVDs include Becoming Jane, Nims Island, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, and The Bank Job. As one can see, the library offers something for people of all ages and interests. So come in and enjoy the community library.
