So she’s not afraid when her scientist dad sails off to study plankton for three days, leaving her alone on their island. But when her father’s cell-phone calls stop coming and disaster seems near, Nim has to be stronger and braver than she’s ever been before. Presented Live in Voice.

Upcoming Events:

STEEHEAD PUBLIC LIBRARY
The September Project

For the third straight year, Steelhead Public Library will be participating in The September Project, a worldwide RL celebration of freedom and independence. During the month of September, we will be holding a series of readings, discussions, and other events about the novel To Kill A Mockingbird. Dates and times will be announced later, but we wanted to give everybody enough notice so they could read the book. All are invited to participate, and we invite other SL libraries to partner with us or create their own September Project events. For more information about The September Project, see http://theseptemberproject.org/connecting-the-world-one-library-at-a-time/

Spread the love
