Meet someone new... Read a biography!

Hi there!
We hope your school year is off to a great start! For the next couple of weeks, we're going to be focusing on a section of the library many people don't even know about: the biographies! A biography is a book that tells the true story of someone's life. You might think that reading a biography sound boring, but you can learn a lot about some really cool people like Ham the Astrochimp (the first monkey astronaut) or The Boy Who Invented TV. Come check out our display or look at other biographies, written for kids just like you!

A catastrophe has struck the Bartlesville Public Library: we're missing our pig puzzle piece! If you find it and bring it back, we'll let you pick a book off the free book shelf. Help us make our puzzle collection complete again!
