Pioneer Library System
Have you ever spent hours creating something really amazing on the computer and then not been able to save it?
Well, the Pioneer Library System would like to help make sure all your hard work does not go to waste. Each hometown library will have the 2GB flash drives available for $9.00 each. We have been selling 1GB flash drives, but now we have upgraded to 2GB flash drives. Now you can store even more of your documents, pictures, videos, and music.
Time to get working on your projects, but be sure to save often.Add a comment

This month's fable, read by the Moore Public Library's Children Department staff, is The Lion and the Mouse. When the western world thinks of fables, Aesop is the name which springs to mind for many. But if it wasn't for Gaius Iulius Phaeder in Pieria, aka Phaedrus, we may not think of fables as we do today.
Phaedrus translated Aesop’s Fables from Greek into Latin and put them in a poetic form. He compiled them in the first collection of fables ever published as literature. He did more than create a compilation of Aesop’s tales, he refined and rewrote the fables in a Greek poetry style, called iambic senarii. He also included some of his own fables using “the old form but with modern content”, some say to fight against moral degradation during the time of Emperors Augustus and Tiberius.Add a comment

According to Great Lives from History: The Ancient World, Prehistory–476 c.e., Aesop lived in the sixth century b.c.e (before common era). If the biography written about him is even partially true, he lived a life more fanciful than all of his fables combined.
He came from Thrace, an area in southeast Europe; was a slave on the Greek island of Samos and was released from slavery for being too much trouble; was described by his biographer as "very ugly, worthless as a servant, potbellied, snub-nosed, swarthy, short-armed, squinted-eyed and liver-lipped"; and was known, as far away as Babylon, for his verbal prowess.Add a comment

Activities to help babies grow into readers are the focus of an innovative early literacy program offered through the Pioneer Library System. Growing Like a Read gives parents the information, materials, methods, and rewards they can use during the first four years of their children’s lives to lay the foundations for reading and language development.
Parents who sign up to be part of Growing Like a Read are given a bag of materials that include a stand-up book of traditional song, rhymes, and finger plays. Parents also receive a set of activity logs that list 30 age-appropriate activities to do with their children. The eight activity logs are tailored to developmental levels at six-month intervals from birth to 48 months. Parents begin with the log that matches their child’s age and receive new materials as the baby grows.Add a comment
