hi guys. the bookmobile will be at the asheville greenworks event on november 15th. check out this link in case you have hard to recycle items to get rid of. also, i will be there to accept any old children's books you no longer need.
i took the bookmobile to the toy boat flea market on sunday. it was fun. i am hoping to get some more book donations soon. if you happen to have any books you no longer need you can bring them to me and i will give you trade credit to get new books. thanks. if the bookmobile isn't out you can let me know via email and i will come pick them up!
coming up is the next free lecture hosted by the bookmobile. it is appropriate for children of all ages. SPACE: where weird things happen is going to be given by guest lecturer and astronomer judith beck.
it will be held at downtown books & news at 67 n. lexington avenue in downtown asheville. sunday, september 21st at 11am
today the bookmobile will be at the organicfest downtown beside the obelisk. it's the second festival i've been to. i still get nervous. i guess after a couple more festivals i'll be a pro.
the flights of fancy: the art of bird watching lecture will be moved to friday september 5th. it is still going to be at the bird sanctuary! i hope you all can still make it. thanks.
the bee lecture on august 22nd was a success. about 9 children came and several adults came without kids just because they were interested! so fun. mary beth gwynn was one of the sweetest ladies i have ever met and very informative. the next lecture will be on september 4th at the beaver lake bird sanctuary at 10am. someone will be talking about bird watching. very exciting!
the lecture series is underway with the first lecture on bees august 22nd. a beekeeper from asheville will be speaking with children at 45 elizabeth place ending with a short walk to see the beehives under the chestnut street bridge. it should be very informative. the next one will be september 4th about bird watching followed by one i am particularly excited about, outer space! an astronomer from unca will be speaking about black holes and whatnot. after that there will be more to come. i'll keep you informed about times and locations. they will be in different places.
i'm looking to do a lecture series for children late summer through the fall. i hope to find local businesses that would be interested in hosting the bookmobile, children, and lecturer. also, i need people who would love to share their abilities with the children. i've contacted several professors and i'm waiting to hear back from them. i want scientists, musicians, firefighters, artists, mechanics, you name it! so, if you or someone you know would like to give a kid friendly talk, contact me please. it wouldn't have to be very long even. i just want to expose them to what cool things you can do!
great news!!! i got the privilege license! things are legitimate! i am officially in business! so please let me know if you want me to attend your child's birthday party. and keep a look out, i will be posting where i am going to be asap. i'm so happy!
