1 Off the Shelf Sección en Español en las paginas The newsletter of the Montrose Regional Library District Summer 2012 by Janet Oslund All children from birth through 5th grade are invited to participate in a fun summer reading game offered by the Montrose Regional Library and the Montrose Bookmobile. The theme of this year s reading game is Dream Big, Read! The fun begins on June 4 and continues through July 27. Each year the library and bookmobile provide free materials and activities to help children stay involved with books and reading over the summer. Research consistently shows that summer reading programs play a major role in fostering literacy skills for all children. By the end of 5th grade, students who do not read during the summer are behind their peers by two years on average. Also, kids read more when they are having fun! We hope this year s program will provide hours of fun for both children and their families with our new addition, a badge-earning component! You do not have to be at the library or the bookmobile to participate in our summer game. The program includes a reading log, which families and children use at home to keep track of the time they spend reading or listening to stories. This year, we are offering a chance for kids to earn badges if they meet certain additional requirements beyond reading. The badges are based around themes, such as Sports and Recreation, Music and Dance, and Theater and Puppetry. Altogether, there are ten possible themes for children to explore. The badge component adds opportunities for enrichment and additional summer learning and involves parents with their children in free and inexpensive educational activities. As children complete reading and badge goals, they will qualify for additional prizes, books, and drawings. Bring your child to the library or bookmobile any time after June 4 to register and learn more about this enjoyable reading game. Everyone who registers will receive a free book! We are here to answer your questions. Just call , Option 2, for the Marguerite H. Gill Children s Room. For the Bookmobile, call , Ext More information will be available soon on our website, See page 6 for a list of Story Times and special events for children. Famous bilingual storyteller coming to Montrose in June! Save the dates!

4 4 Summer 2012 Off the Shelf Children are never too young for stories and books by Paul Paladino, Library District Director How young is too young to use the library? When I was growing up, the assumption was when you could write your name, you were old enough to use the library. Recent research into brain development shows that this is way too late to introduce a child to the library and to the wonderful world of words. Children develop as much as 90% of the neural pathways they will use to be successful in school and in their later lives by the time they are three years old, long before we think to expose them to our education system. Studies also show children who are exposed to stories, accompanying pictures with colors, letters and numbers, songs and other literate activities develop more of these pathways. What's more, these pathways are more efficient and more developed than those of children who aren't exposed to books, songs and other creative activities. So, does this mean we should send our kids straight from the hospital to school? As much as some parents of newborns may like this in order to get a little IT projects improve library services by Tom Struble, MRLD IT Administrator Technology, like Colorado weather, is pretty much always changing. Here at the library we have several new IT (information technology) projects lined up and (almost) ready to launch. Bandwidth (or lack thereof) in a small town is always a problem. Lack of providers, limited choices, and not so competitive prices. But even on the Western Slope, technology refuses to stand still. Montrose has a few new players in the bandwidth market, and the library is converting all three of its networks in the Montrose branch over to one of the new ISP's. The public and staff network are already enjoying the much (much) higher speeds, and the wifi users should be changed over sometime in the next week or so. Like with most things in tech, performance increases and cost decreases. The library will be getting an almost 1200% increase in download speeds and a 700% increase in upload speeds. As the resident geek, I would be happy at just the speed increases, but the even better news (at least to our budget) is the new service costs less then then 28% of what we were paying to the previous vendor. More for less, you gotta love that. Another project is revamping our wifi service. Everybody loves the free wifi, unfortunately, a few people love it just a bit too much, and hog up all the resources for just themselves. The new wifi service, which will support b/g/n on both 2.4 and 5.0 Ghz, is more sophisticated. User credentials (requiring a valid address), bandwidth control, and application filtering will make sure that everyone gets a fair share, instead of just one or two users hogging it all. The public wifi service will still be open (meaning no encryption), so remember to use public hotspot common sense. The library's meeting room got revamped, with a new projection screen wall (thanks to the talent of Joe C. our building tech). We're also adding a high tech Polycomm conference room phone. As soon as we get the user guide cheat sheet for the phone s numerous bells and whistles, it will be available for the meeting room users. I'm out of space for this issue, so the other half dozen or so projects will have to wait until next time. Of course you can also get the latest news and announcements on the library's new website at Surf Safely. sleep, no. It doesn't. What it does mean is a steady diet of pleasant, fun language experiences from the very beginning will provide a basis for optimum learning throughout life. My take on this is that the wisdom of the ages is proven once again to be, well, wise. Lullabies are stories that are sung. Often they are sung to a child over and over. Yes, it is soothing for the child but it is also an opportunity for that child to hear words. The child hears the same words over and over. Children learn by repetition. They learn the words and they learn the cadence of speech and sentences. Research on brain development shows scientific proof of the immense value of lullabies, nursery rhymes and books being read aloud to babies. Through imaging technology we can now actually see brain synapses connect and grow by Meg Nagel We ve been having fun with writing this winter and spring. We started with a Writing Month in January and every month since we ve had workshops and meetings to help writers of all kinds. The momentum is continuing in June, when we will be having two workshops: one for poets and the other for writers of fiction, the publishing of the next Geodes poetry letter and an Open Mic.. On Thursday, June 7, local poet, V. Paul Hall, will conduct a workshop on the techniques of rhyming. The workshop will define rhyme and explore some of the common mistakes, such as, using identity instead of rhyme, using words that are spelled the same, but pronounced differently, etc. We will explore the various intricate rhyme schemes employed in the more formal forms of poetry, such as sonnets, ballades, triolets, and the rondel family. The workshop should give the student a Wellbeans by Dianna Reuter during those significant early weeks, months and years. Child development experts now agree that relying on maturation only as a measurement for readiness to learn may greatly limit the potential learning ability of a child. Instead, appropriate language and literacy experiences of all kinds must be an integral part of the early months and years. Most of us have at least some of the skills to help build this base for optimum learning throughout our community. Most of us, myself included, can read the most basic of books for children. If you are a grandparent or grandparent to be of a newborn, fantastic, you have a ready made audience. But in most all of our neighborhoods there are young children. Why not take some time to read to them? I bet many young working parents would appreciate a little help in that deeper appreciation for the more formal and intricate forms of poetry. Paul s workshop will begin the Montrose library meeting room and will begin at 7:00 pm. On Wednesday, June 27 Mona Hodgson will be in town to give a workshop on Researching History for the Story. She is the author of more than thirty-two books for adults and children, including her popular Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series: Two Brides Too Many, Too Rich for a Bride, The Bride Wore Blue, and Twice a Bride (October 2012). area. Montrose Writing Year continues Mona Hodgson The library has, in the past, trained readers for a program that reads to children waiting in pediatricians offices. When we can replace the staff to do so, we will provide such training again. In the meantime, offer to take a child to a story time. The story times of today don't just entertain, they are structured to teach literacy concepts and to give adult attendees concrete suggestions for what they can do at home with their children that will further their literacy goals. But they do it in a way that everyone has fun. You can give a child who may not have one a gift of a book. You can give a child a gift of your time. If you need more ideas, talk to someone at your local library. We are full of ideas. In her workshop, Hodgson will share how she combed through Colorado history to find tasty morsels that brought her 1890's Cripple Creek setting to life, inspired both her fictional and real life characters, and provided story premises and plot twists. Bring your questions. The deadline for submissions of poetry for the June issue of Geodes is 8:00 pm on Monday, June 4. Bring your poems to Meg Nagel at the library, or send them to All submissions should include your name, address, and phone number and if you submit by , be sure to put Geodes in the subject line. The June Geodes will first be available at the Open Mic which will be held on Monday, June 18, at 7:30 pm inside the library by the fireplace. Bring your own or favorite poems, short prose or acoustic music to share with others.

6 6 Summer 2012 Off the Shelf Award-winning folksinger and children s musician to entertain all ages! by Janet Oslund Prominent folk singer and children s musician Kevin Roth will be performing twice at the Montrose Regional Library on June 13. At 10:30 am, he will present a special music show for children called My Quiet Times Story Time and Sing-Along. This will be a minute toddler program in which he will play the dulcimer, read from one of his new Wabby books, and sing songs with the kids. At 7:00 pm, Kevin will present Folked! which is a tribute to the folk music of Peter, Paul & Mary; Pete Seeger; Joni Mitchell; Bob Dylan; and others. This will be a 60- minute concert using the dulcimer and possibly a piano or keyboard. Not only does he sing and play instruments, but he also tells stories about the songs. Kevin Roth has had a long career playing various types of dulcimers and the piano, singing, and composing songs. He is best known as a children s musician, although by Sandra Smagala A Board book is a type of book printed on thick paperboard. Each page, including the cover, is a minimum of two plies of paperboard. A board book is specially scored, folded and bound together after printing. Since board books are so durable, they are great for small children. Many of the best selling titles started out in regular hardcover editions. Currently China and Mexico produce most of the board books sold in the world today. Dial Publishing Company, now a division of the Penguin Young Reader's group, published some of the first quality board books in the United States. Usborne Publishing started in the United Kingdom in This company distributes world-wide and the Touchy-Feely book series was voted best buy in the Toddler Book Category of the Prima Baby Reader Awards in he has recorded traditional dulcimer music for the legendary Folkways Records, and his entire Folkways collection is now part of the Smithsonian Folkways label. His concert appearances and albums have carried him across the country and abroad, performing in solo and symphony concerts, music festivals, and the White House, and making television and radio appearances. What are Board Books? He got his big break as a children s musician when he was asked to sing the theme song for the PBS television series, Shining Time Station, which is based on the character of Thomas the Tank Engine. His latest project for children is a series of books and music called The Tales of Wabby. These two performances are made possible by funding from the Montrose Friends of the Library These books are aimed at young children, have bright pictures and different textures. Especially popular are the That's Not My series of books written by Fiona Watt and mostly illustrated by Rachel Wells. The stories follow a pattern. For instance the book That's Not My Lion reads like this: That's not my lion. Its nose is too fuzzy. That's not my lion. Its ears are too soft. That's not my lion. Its paws are too rough. That's not my lion. Its tail is too fluffy. That's not my lion. Its teeth are too shiny. That's my lion..its mane is so shaggy. Each verse has a picture to touch which has the spot named to be fuzzy, soft, rough, fluffy, shiny, and shaggy.

7 Off the Shelf Summer by Jeri Gilham Through literacy events and programs for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds, libraries are working with parents and caregivers to spread bookjoy with the American Library Association s summer reading program entitled Dream Big, Read! ( American Library Association.) Summer 2012 is right around the corner and the Montrose Regional Library Bookmobile is hoping to spread bookjoy throughout our communities. If you have never met us before, we are a 31-foot-long brightly illustrated vehicle which is the proud home to three librarians (two of whom speak Spanish) and over l,500 books, DVD s, and books on CD. We provide many of the same services as your local library branch.you can check out books and DVDs, request Interlibrary loans (ILL s), listen to story times and request reader s advisory. We provide services to a wide variety of places including schools, senior centers, early childhood with the Bookmobile centers and town park facilities. Our summer schedule will be on board with summer reading programs, honored guests, and special events. Bring your child to the bookmobile beginning June 4 to register for the Dream Big, Read! program or to the main library any time after June 4th. Everyone who registers will receive a free book. Participants will be given a reading log that families and children can use at home to keep track of the minutes they spend reading or listening to stories. Children will also be offered a chance to earn merit badges by exploring themes beyond reading. As children complete reading and badge goals, they will qualify for additional awards. June will also bring us nationally known bilingual storyteller Joe Hayes to two of our regular locations. The public is invited to join the Bookmobile and Mr. Hayes on June 4 at 2:00 p.m. at Northbrook Villas, located at Marine Drive and on June 5 at 2:00 p.m. in the Olathe Town Park. Mr. Hayes will be conducting story telling sessions drawn from Hispanic, Native American, and Anglo cultures of the American Southwest. Mr. Hayes has published over twenty children s books and has been the resident storyteller at the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe for 29 years. Finally, the Bookmobile will be present during Main in Motion on Thursday evenings beginning in June, and Montrose and Olathe will find us in the Fourth of July, County Fair and Corn Festival parades so be sure to stop in for a visit or give us a wave. Our summer schedule is in print and on our website: bookmobile We welcome suggestions and comments. To turn the tables a bit, here s a story that illustrates one of the many reasons that we love being out on the bookmobile-- --those moments that our patrons make us smile, sometimes laugh out loud, or just say, hmmmm. Distributing bookmarks is standard procedure and we recently received some with vintage drawings illustrating well known fairy tales. One of our younger patrons studied his bookmark quite seriously for a moment and then asked, Do you think Mary got in trouble? Maybe even expelled from school? We re not supposed to bring animals to school and I bet MY principal would get MAD! We assured him that Mary was probably just given a warning however, we have a soft spot for animals on the bookmobile and have welcomed puppies so if a lamb happens to follow you on, we d probably fight over the right to cuddle it while you choose a book. We have been so encouraged and entertained by our patrons and we would like to say thank-you for all your suggestions and support. Your involvement keeps us informed and up to date with current needs and trends of our readers. Our patrons are the Bookmobile!!! We only work successfully because of our communities so thank you to all our patrons and come see us this summer and bring friends!

With a gift of $2,500 or more (which may be pledged over five years), you can create a Permanent Book Fund. The Fund is invested in perpetuity, with its income used to purchase books annually. Here are some of the people who have created Permanent Book Funds. If you'd like to learn more about creating a Fund, please contact Amy McBride at The Lester and Ruth Sendecki Permanent Book Fund A person's bookshelves say a lot about them. The shelves of Lester and Ruth Sendecki reveal passions for travel, jeeping, and American culture. There's The Roadside Geology of Colorado, The Naturalist's Guide to the Southern Colorado Rockies, The Autobiography of Mark Twain, the travel books of Peter Jenkins and William Least Heat-Moon, and The Red Hole in Time by Muriel Marshall, which describes the history of Escalante Canyon, north of Delta. The Sendeckis' Permanent Book Fund purchases travel and animal books for the shelves at Montrose Regional Library, and last year the Fund generated $150 to purchase nine new titles, including Rick Steves' Best of Europe 2012 and Avian Architecture: How Birds, Design, Engineer & Build. Almost two years ago, Lester and Ruth Sendecki moved to Montrose from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Lester retired from a career in the Small Business Administration, where he says he had the best job in the federal government, helping businesses secure government contracts after they'd been rejected for being too small to do the job. Ruth was born in Louisiana and spent her career as a loan review officer in the banking industry. She now lends her spreadsheet knowledge as a volunteer at the Montrose Regional Library. Libraries and reading have played an important role in their lives. Ruth remembers reading to her mother as she washed dishes, as well as the moment she realized that Run, Spot, run, opened the world of reading. Lester recalls many hours spent at the public library across from his high school in Nutley, New Jersey, and he showed me a picture of it that he made sure appeared in his high school yearbook. Lester and Ruth often visited the Cedar Rapids Public Library, until it was devastated by a flood in The library has since rebuilt, and the Sendeckis were pleased to donate many books to the library when they decided to make the move to Montrose. They used books to research the options for where they wanted to retire, and Montrose ultimately won out over Prescott, Arizona. The Montrose Regional Library was one of the factors that informed their decision. In fact, I had the pleasure of leading them on a tour of the library prior to their decision to move. They believe that the library is very impressive for a community of Montrose's size. They especially enjoy the library's many program offerings, and Ruth is currently enrolled in the library's Spanish class. In addition to travel and jeeping books, Ruth reads just about everything. Lester enjoys historical fiction and magazines, and the Sendeckis recently made a gift to the library to ensure that Car and Driver stays on the shelf in the midst of the library's recent budget cuts. Twelve years ago, Ruth decided to take her passion for books and travel to the next level and wrote a book our library now owns, called Without a Passport. It's a delightful chronicle of the road trips that she and Lester have taken...from the Million Dollar Highway to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. In her introduction, Ruth writes, After you have finished reading this, I hope...that you get out your road atlas, this book, and any other guides you have at home and begin planning a road trip. Thanks to the Sendeckis generosity, the Montrose Regional Library will have a fresh supply of guide books each year to help you plan your next trip. The Charles A. Manis Memorial Permanent Book Fund Gayle Johnson thinks that the idea of a Permanent Book Fund is thrilling. Long after I'm gone, my money will be working for the library, she says. She also believes that immortality is achieved through others remembering you, and she's happy that her father's memory will live on in bookplates in the covers of all the books that her Fund will purchase in perpetuity. Her father, Charles A. Manis, was a World War II Navy veteran, who didn't graduate from high school. After his military service, he drove a milk truck, but then realized that he couldn't do that forever, so he passed the General Educational Development (GED) test, went to college, and became a high school English teacher. He liked to joke that he was a high school teacher who hadn't graduated high school. He was a great reader says Gayle, avid about non-fiction, especially the works of Stephen Ambrose and Doris Kearns Goodwin. He also enjoyed John Milton. He encouraged Gayle's love of reading, and there always were books in her home. Like her father, Gayle came to education later in her career. After thirty years as a customer service supervisor for Gates Rubber Company in Denver, she moved to Montrose in 1999, and worked as a substitute teacher. A benevolent principal named Anne Braaten hired her to teach fourth grade at Johnson Elementary. Gayle now teaches at Centennial Middle School in the 21st Century After School Program. Gayle grew up outside of Littleton, and recalls that she couldn't check out books from the Littleton Public Library since she wasn't a resident. Later, she remembers attracting attention from the local librarian for checking out a book by Frank Yerby, since she suspected that the book was a bit racy for someone of her tender age. (I hadn't heard of Frank Yerby, and my research reveals that he was known for his historical romances.) Nowadays, Gayle is fond of Elizabeth George and writers of other well-constructed stories, as well as the historical non-fiction that her father liked. She considers the Montrose Regional Library a gift to the community, and she's pleased to support it through a Book Fund. Her Fund specifically supports non-fiction books. I like that the Book Fund is forever. It's not just a flash in the pan that is spent and then forgotten, she says.
9 Off the Shelf Summer The Nick and Kristen Neubaum Permanent Book Fund According to the National Institutes of Health, parents' reading skill is the greatest determinant of their child's future academic success, and in the case of Kaitlyn (12), Megan (8), and Lauren (3) Neubaum, their success is assured. Their parents, Nick and Kristen Neubaum, have filled their house and their lives with books. They firmly believe that early childhood literacy creates smarter children. To share their love of reading with others, they created a Permanent Book Fund The Neubaums, left to right: Kaitlyn, Nick, Lauren, Kristen, Megan. to buy family audiobooks. Many weekends will find the Neubaums heading out on a camping trip, and they always bring along an audiobook to enjoy together. They've listened to all of the Magic Tree House, Jigsaw Jones, and Geronimo Stilton series, and on their latest Spring Break trip to Anasazi ruins in Utah, they listened to two Jigsaw Jones Mysteries--The Case of the Mummy Mystery and The Case of the Glow in the Dark Ghost. The Neubaums' house is filled with books. In addition to a whole room that serves as a library, with a comfortable couch and chairs, everyone has their own shelves in their bedrooms. Kaitlyn is reading The Hunger Games, which is consistent with her love for adventure books. She also has enjoyed books by J.K. Rowling and Margaret Peterson Haddix. Megan likes the Boxcar Children, the Cabin Creek Mysteries by Kristiana Gregory, and A to Z Mysteries by Ron Roy. Little Lauren likes Clifford the Big Red Dog, and anything having to do with counting and the alphabet. Every night before they go to bed, the girls read (or are read to), and they take books with them wherever they go. The family regularly visits the Montrose Regional Library, and they're glad that the library offers all kinds of formats, such as e-books and audiobooks. As an ophthalmologist at Colorado West Ophthalmology Associates, Nick is glad that the library offers audiobooks and large print books for his patients. Kristen described how her grandmother relied on audiobooks when her eyesight deteriorated. Kristen and Nick met at Colorado State University, where Kristen was getting a degree in bilingual elementary education, and Nick was studying medicine. Both are Colorado natives. Kristen grew up in Colorado Springs, and Nick in Pueblo and Cañon City. They spent time in Omaha (where Nick attended medical school at Creighton University) and in Columbia, Missouri and Loveland before moving to Montrose in Nick is a big fan of Westerns, and his shelves are full of complete collections of Louis L'Amour, Zane Gray, Max Brand, and Elmore Leonard. Kristen likes mysteries, especially Agatha Christie, and she really enjoyed the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Kristen remembers taking turns reading aloud on family trips, Nick recalls that getting his first library card was a rite of passage. The Neubaums are excited that their Permanent Book Fund will build the library's collection of audiobooks. Last year, their fund purchased several exciting titles, including The Sixty-Eight Rooms by Marianne Malone, an adventure that takes place in a miniature house at the Chicago Art Institute, and The Big Wander by Will Hobbs, about a 14-year old boy who travels to the remote canyons of the Navajo reservation to save his uncle. Check them out for your next road trip! What: Used Book Sale Where: Library Meeting room Who: You. Pay attention, this is complicated. There is a special deal for Friends of the Library Members -- they get to come early when the selection is best! If you are not a current Friends of the Library Member you may come early and join and have early access to sale books. When: Different times on different days to accommodate everyone. Thursday, May 17 7:00AM-2:00PM 2:00PM-7:00PM Members Only Join and become a Friends Member Everyone Friday, May 18 Saturday, May 19 9:00AM-5:00PM 10:00AM-5:00PM by Dennis Olmstead Our volunteers have been working to upgrade the offerings of books at the sale, spending many hours sorting and disposing of totally outdated and damaged books. In other words, most of our selections are all in the wow, look what I found category! The new policy of asking $1 for hardback and trade paper books and 50 cents for paperbacks has been successful. Most think this is a fair price for value received. You don't know what a trade paper book is? Ask us at the sale and we will enlighten you as to these messy details. Hint: they look like an expensive book, but have a soft cover and cost a little less when new. The special "Coffee Table" type books have been sorted and will be available on a special $5 table. Looking for something in the old and neat category? We have it for you. Shoppers will find a selection of priced books which research has shown to have special value. Previously, these books were sent to book brokers, but now will be offered directly to Book Sale patrons. These books include out of print books, early editions, handsome literary volumes, collectibles, and specialized subjects such as art and history. We also plan for those looking for bargains. After noon on Saturday we offer a discount on the $1 and 50 cent books: all you can put in a grocery bag for $3! Library users and supporters are cordially invited to become members of Friends of the Library for $10 per year for individuals and $15 for a family. Business and Lifetime memberships are also available. Membership brings with it early admission to used book sales sponsored by the Friends each year. Membership forms are available at the Library.

Uno de nuestros clientes jóvenes estudió su separador de libros muy seriamente por un momento y después preguntó Tú crees que Mary se metió en problemas? A lo mejor hasta será expulsada de la escuela. Se supone que no debemos de traer animales a la escuela y apuesto que el director se va a enojar. Nos aseguramos que el director le diera a Mary solo una advertencia Como sea, nos gustan mucho los animales en la biblioteca móvil y los cachorros son bienvenidos, entonces si un corderito te sigue probablemente lo cuidaremos mientras escoges un libro.
