Ross Youth Services - WATCH for more news in 2016

 With every book, you go back to school. You become a student. You become an investigative reporter. You spend a little time learning what it's like to live in someone else's shoes.

~John Irving 


 It begins with picture books, beginning chapter books, family read-alouds, and all kinds of fiction from middle grade to young adult. Books made into movies are great fun, but they are no substitute for imagining what it feels like to be a character springing from the pages of a book. Research tells us that there is a correlation between the lack of reading good fiction and an increase in unkind behaviors and bullying among the young. Reading teaches empathy. Set a goal to read more fiction this school year.


Some Odds and Ends:

Any community member who is interested in serving on the library’s Board of Trustees or the Friends of Ross Library Board can fill out an application at the main desk.

Call 570 748-3484 or 570 748-3321 for the library’s code to sign onto Overdrive (e-books) or the Power Library through the library webpage .  Put this number before your own 5 digit library card. If you have a four digit card number, put a zero first to create five digits.

Tumblebooks and Book Flix are available through the library webpage. Tumblebooks are e-books for young people. You can click directly onto the Tumblebook icon and you do not need the code. Book Flix is part of the Power Library, so you will need the code.

If you are a Facebook user, like our three pages: Annie Halenbake Ross Library, Ross Library Youth Services, and Ross Library Adult Services.
