Next week, the Carleton Place Public Library is pleased to welcome the author of IF…A MIND-BENDING NEW WAY OF LOOKING AT BIG IDEAS AND NUMBERS, David J. Smith! While he won’t be speaking at the library, he’ll be joining us at St. Mary’s Catholic School to visit with the students there. If you aren’t aware, we have class visits from St. Mary’s students quite regularly here at the library, and we thought this visit would be a nice way to reward them for coming and using the library. It’s going to be a fun visit!
Mr. Smith will arrive here in Carleton Place next Tuesday, November 4th, and we’ll whisk him over the St. Mary’s where he’ll talk about his latest book, as well as some of his other great non-fiction for young people. He is a teacher with more than 25 years experience in a classroom setting, and his books show that he’s well aware of the difficulties in teaching young people about size and comparison. This should be a really fun talk, and we’re hoping he’ll be able to sign a few books while he’s here. We have his collection available here in the library, and we encourage anyone who might want to purchase one of his books to drop by our local bookstore, Reads Book Shop, and order a copy. If you have a young person aged 8-12 at home, it’s a great book to consider.
We’re looking forward to next week!
