Paws to Read - Librarian Pets

Meet your favorite librarian's pets all through summer library club. Check back every week for another cute critter! This week it's:

Miss Maggie and Fat Louie

Fat Louie is 9 years old. He has been with our family since Santa brought him to our house when he was only a few months old!  He loves to play outside, he loves to be brushed, and he is so friendly we sometimes wonder if he isn’t really a dog inside. He never hides from people, he loves to sing after he eats, and he is the best snuggler in the whole family.


Summer Library Club is here!

The Summer Library Club at Fremont Public Library is gearing up! Visit the library six times between June 16 and July 27 and receive a free book, courtesy of the Friends of the Library, and coupons. This is for ages birth-6th grade and all children are welcome to participate. This is a great incentive to visit the library this summer so stop on by!


Pokemon League Sets Up at Fremont

Join us every Saturday from 1:00pm-4:00pm for your chance to catch 'em all!

A Pokémon League is a fun and casual environment where people can meet to play the Pokémon Trading Card Game/Video Game and trade cards.  Players earn rewards for the games they play, usually exclusive Pokémon cards and badges.  Because fun and participation are the focus of a Pokémon League, players earn the same awards no matter whether they win or lose the games they play.

Pokémon games encourage people to learn.  Reading skills are required in most Pokémon games, as are math skills, strategic thinking and problem solving.   Through collecting and trading, Pokémon games also encourage sharing.  It’s a game than can be played by children as young as five (with some help), but can also be challenging for adults.  It’s a great game for family members to play together.  It doesn’t take up much space, so it’s great to pack for family trips.  It also emphasizes character development through the focus on sportsmanship and personal improvement.


Non-Fiction Finder: Amazing Animals

The Long, Long Journey by Sandra Markle

E 598.33 MAR


Readers will find out about the growth and development of the tiny Godwit which is capable of flying from Cape Avinof Alaska to New Zealand non-stop.  Learn how this amazing bird prepares for the journey, fights off predators and then does what the Godwit does best: fly, fly, fly!  Muted illustrations and approachable text make this an easy read-aloud to share with preschoolers. 


Shimmer & Splash: The Sparkling World of Sea Life by Jim Arnosky

J 591.77

Another great animal nonfiction book by the renowned Jim Arnosky, giant fold-out spreads introduce readers to a variety of ocean dwellers.  Ideal for people who just want to browse through the beautiful illustrations as well as those that want accurate information about sea life. While preschoolers will certainly enjoy the illustrations, the reading level of the text is better suited for grades 3 and up.


Dinosaurs at the Library!

Last Saturday, November 23, the library was overcome with dinosaurs! Fossilized dinosaurs, that is. Janet Riehecky renowned dinosaur hunter, author, and teacher brought along fossils and museum-style replicas of a wide array of dinosaurs, including a five-foot, seven-inch Apatosaurus femur and a complete T-Rex foot. Her vast knowledge of dinosaur facts was complimented by the young audience's enthusiasm and awareness of all things dinosaur. Miss Riehecky was quite impressed by their large dinosaur vocabulary! A fun time was had by all.
