Rye S.T.E.A.M. ROLLERS Grades 3-4
Rye Free Reading Room, Saturday, February 25 at 4pm
All Ryebrary S.T.E.A.M. ROLLERS in grades 3 & 4 are invited to join the librarians once-a-month in our "New S.T.E.A.M. LAB" where Literacy meets S.T.E.A.M. Each month we will read a book together. Then taking inspiration from the story, we will teach kids how to think with their hands and minds. It's Inquiry-based learning combined with a hands-on-activity in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, or Math. Literacy Meets S.T.E.A.M.!
February's book is Josephine:The Dazzling Life of Josephine Baker by Patricia Hruby Powell. *Children do not have to pre-read the book. The STEAM activity will be designing and constructing a virtual costume for Josephine Baker with supplies of our choosing. (This will be a group project)
In exuberant verse and stirring pictures, Patricia Hruby Powell and Christian Robinson create an extraordinary portrait for young people of the passionate performer and civil rights advocate Josephine Baker, the woman who worked her way from the slums of St. Louis to the grandest stages in the world. Meticulously researched by both author and artist, Josephine's powerful story of struggle and triumph is an inspiration and a spectacle, just like the legend herself.

Current Events Book Group: The Half Has Never Been Told
Rye Free Reading Room, Tuesday, February 28 at 6:30pm
The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism by Edward E. Baptist
Review from The Wall Street Journal
"Abolitionists were contemptuous of such self-serving nonsense, but they too tended to see slavery as an economically inefficient, and morally reprehensible, hangover from the premodern past. . . . In The Half Has Never Been Told, Edward E. Baptist takes passionate issue with such assumptions. He asserts that slavery was neither inherently inefficient nor a counterpoint to capitalism. Rather, he says, it was woven inextricably into the transnational fabric of early 19th-century capitalism.... Baptist writes with verve and a good eye for the dramatic."

Moderated by John Dolan, this group meets monthly to discuss books that offer diverse opinions about timely economic, political, social or international concerns. (added from Eventkeeper)
