Tuesday, December 31, 2019
FRANKFORT PUBLIC LIBRARY DISTRICT
Read Widely 2019 January 1 - December 31, 2019
A year-long adult reading program to test your limits and read outside your comfort zone.

Registration opens December 16, 2018.
Resolve to read more widely.
Read from 12 out of 18 themes to win an insulated stainless steel tumbler with the FPLD logo.

Here’s How It Works:
Sign up online starting December 16, 2018 at Beanstack - the library's online reading program log. (Alternatively, a paper option will be available at the Adult Services desk).

A choice of 18 themes will encourage readers to try new authors, genres, and topics. Read from 12 out of 18 themes to complete the year long challenge. Log your books in Beanstack (or on your paper log). You may complete the challenge as quickly as you like, but it must be completed before the end of 2019.

After you complete the challenge (collect 12 out of 18 themed badges), stop by the Adult Services desk for your FPLD tumbler.

Reading logs will CLOSE at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, December 31, 2019.

Prize pickup ends January 21, 2020.

Parenting Book Club

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
FRANKFORT PUBLIC LIBRARY DISTRICT
Meeting Room B

Parenting Book Club—No advice, just sharing stories, problems, and laughter – Parents will come together to discuss issues they come across in parenting, what the experts say and what actually works in real life, and what might actually be making their children (of any age) listen to common sense (what the parent says).

This month, we are discussing How to Talk So Kids Will Listen by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish or How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen by Joanna Faber: Do the punishments you use not really seem to work? Do you remember your parents using the same tactics on you (and how you got around their rules)? Worried that if you don’t discipline your kids, they won’t learn to be productive members of society and will live in your basement until they are fifty? Here are some tricks that might work for you, some you might laugh at, and plenty of stories to make you feel less alone.

Copies of the book will be available at the Circulation Desk one month before the meeting date. Request the little kids book if your children are 7 and under. If your children are a range of ages, choose either book. Register online or call 815-534-6173.
