Presidents Day Author Visit!

Elliott Kaufman, photographer, in the NYSCI Library, February 17, 2014.
Our library visitors learned to look at the world in a new way; recognizing letters and numbers every where they go!

Elliott engaged our audience with numbers and letters from his books, NUMBERS EVERYWHERE and ALPHABET EVERYWHERE.
Who is seven? he asked. He handed them photos of the number 7 that he has found in architecture and other places.
Who’s name starts with a B (or C or D)? 

This was a different sort of visit than our usual straight forward author visit.  He did not read a story or talk about writing children’s books.  He engaged the audience in visual fun.  They eagerly responded.  Thank you Elliot!  And thanks to Abbeville Press for making this happen and supporting our promotions.

AUTHOR VISIT IN THE LIBRARY.

Author Christy Hale read DREAMING UP to an enthusiastic audience on Saturday, October 12, 2013.  We all learned about styles of architecture. The concepts were made concrete with a building activity that followed.
One visiting educator commented on the diversity of the children pictured in the book. Christy told us that her publisher Lee & Low Books is known for creating books especially for children of color.

Thank you Bruce Goldstone!

Author Bruce Goldstone visited the Science Technology Library and read from his book GREAT ESTIMATIONS on Saturday December 29th.  The crowd enjoyed learning about strategies for estimating huge numbers of cherries, paper clips, rubber duckies and more.  Bruce had them thinking about numbers and having fun. 

Fans were able to purchase signed copies of the book.  Thanks to our gift shop for setting up operations in our library.  Of course it SOLD OUT.

His next book is on PROBABILITY and he is currently working on one about VISUAL PATTERNS.  We hope that Bruce comes back to teach and read to us about those fascinating subjects.

More info about Bruce at his website.

Many thanks to our Library volunteers, Betty, Ava and Kristin for making both sessions run smoothly.
