4-H On Display @ the Library!

Have you ever noticed that the display case by the Circulation Desk changes monthly?  From artwork from nearby schools to local groups promoting their cause, there is always something interesting to look at in the display case.

This month is no exception!  Get in during the month of October to see the 4-H display!

Interested in 4-H??  Check out the Dupage County 4-H website HERE.  Here is just a little blurb about 4-H from their website:
There are more than 450 youth in 23 community clubs, Cloverbuds groups, and school groups, throughout DuPage County. Clearly 4-H is not just for rural youth. With over 150 projects areas to choose from, the 4-H club experience gives boys and girls ages 8-18 an opportunity to explore topics of interest, make new friends, develop leadership and life skills, and contribute through community service. 4-H'ers also have the opportunity to partake in events on the county, state, national, and even international levels.
 **Located in the display, you can find the contact information for the 
Roselle Go Gettems 4-H Group!** 

 The display showcases just some of the fun and interesting thing you can discover in 4-H!  

Remember, this is only here through the end of October, so make sure to get in and check it out TODAY!

It's Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Yarrrr Matey!  It's that most excellent day again!  It's Talk Like a Pirate Day!  Every year on September 19 you get to bust out yer pirate talk or walk the plank to Davey Jones Lock!

Not sure what pirrrrrate talk is?  Check out our Mango Languages Database and learn a "new language"! 
(seriously, it's right there along with Spanish, French, German and 60 other languages!)

Never heard of Talk Like a Pirate Day??  Then check out the Official Website HERE.

Here are a few key phrases to keep you "in the know" before you get a chance to check out Mango Languages:
  • Ahoy! - "Hello!"
  • Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get out!"
  • Aye! - "Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did."
  • Aye aye! - "I'll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over."
  • Arrr! - This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. "Arrr!" can mean, variously, "yes," "I agree," "I'm happy," "I'm enjoying this can of pop," "My team is going to win it all," "I saw that television show, it was the worst!" and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!

Labor Day is coming!

Labor Day 2014!

First, in case you didn't realize it, Labor Day Weekend is coming up this weekend!  I just wanted to remind everyone that the Library will be CLOSED on:

Sunday, August 31
Monday, September 1

So besides a long weekend and what many people consider the official end of Summer, why do we have Labor Day?

Well, according to the US Department of Labor website:

Labor Day: How it Came About; What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. 

So while you are having a last hurrah BBQ, going to the pool one last time, or going on that last long weekend vacation, go on and celebrate the hard working Americans that make our lives so great!

Want more information on the history of Labor Day?
