Hope all had a relaxing Spring Break. Now it is time to get back into things. Remember that the Clearwater Public Library has Lego Land every Tuesday after school until 4:30PM and Story time every Thursday at 10:30AM. Beginning on April 1 there will be an Easter contest. A small rubber duck reading a book will be hidden somewhere in the public area of the library. If you spot the duck please do not move it but tell the Librarian and then you can put your name and contact information in the box. A name will be drawn, the winner contacted and announced Good Friday (April 14th). The prize is two one time free admission to Botanica in Wichita. While you are here for the Art Walk on April 7th you can look for the Reading Rubber Duck! If you come to the Art Walk do not forget to put your name and contact information in the box to try your luck at winning two (2) passes to The Wichita Music Theatre (more art!), only at the Library.
Did you know that Reading makes you happier and healthier? Great books help you understand and they help you feel understood. Your parents always told you that reading had its benefits; but, it turns out that those benefits go way beyond learning (and keeping you out of their hair). Reading is able to reduce stress and readers show a remarkable tendency to be happier and healthier than non-readers. That is according to research put together by Raphael Lysander. There are physical benefits (like a lower heart rate) and mental/emotional benefits (like increased empathy). Read – after all, it is good for you.
