Author Visit with Keith Jacobs, author of "Alicia Without Sight and the Dreams She Dreams At Night"

Keith Jacobs, native Huntsvillian and author of "Alicia Without Sight and the Dreams She Dreams At Night" will be visiting the Main Library to read his book.  This amazing story describes what happens when a girl who has been blind since birth dreams.  " Alicia has been blind since birth and hears, tastes, smells, and feels her way through her dreams.  Every night her mind is filled with people, places, and things, that she knows, loves, and imagines.  Come share Alicia's slumber and join her on sensational adventures across mountaintops, through forests, and all the way back home to her bed." You will also have the opportunity to purchase one of Keith's books for him to autograph.

The Kiwanis Little Learners Workshop is back!

The Kiwanis Little Learners' program is a parent/child workshop for children ages 1-3 and their caregivers (parents, grandparents, or legal guardians).  While caregivers play with their children in an informal setting, they are introduced to professionals in speech and language, nutrition, child development, and physical fitness. 

Little Learners is made possible by a generous grant from the Kiwanis Club of Huntsville. 
Community organizations contributing their expertise are the Center for Speech and Language, Alabama Psychological Services Center, Oakwood University, and the Little Gym of Jones Valley. 

Sign-ups are now open for this free program.  All workshops meet 10:30-11:45am in the Auditorium of the Main Library.  The dates for these workshops are: February 22, February 29, March 7, March 14, and March 21.  Participants agree to attend at least four of the five workshop dates.  A special information session will be held for registrants on Wednesday, February 15th at 10:30am. 

Sign ups are now closed.

Space is limited, so sign up soon!  Sign-ups received after we've reached our limit may be subject to a wait list.

A Visit with Harriet Tubman


This program, appropriate for all ages, features a re-enactment of famous abolitionist Harriet Tubman by local actor, Renee Mobley.   Renee’s beautiful and inspired portrayal of Harriet Tubman was very popular in 2011 and we are so glad she is back for 2012!  At the end of the performance she hosts a question and answer session where children and their families can ask questions about Harriet Tubman, history, and the civil rights movement.
