If your situation sounds like any of these, why not sign up for Resume Review via Microsoft Teams! Time slot registration will be open between 4 and 5 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 15. (Registration will only be available during this hour.)

Rockin’ Kids Club: virtual visit with author Lindsay Leslie (preregistration) (ages 5-9)

The Round Rock Library Public Library invites author Lindsay Leslie on Monday, November 9, 2020, to read her picture book “This Book is Spineless”.  Preregister to join us online at 4:30 pm and hear her presentation “Fear: It’s Just One of Our Emotions”. 

In “This Book is Spineless”, the book is super scared of what is on its pages. Can it manage to get through the story? Lindsay will read from her book and talk about the path of working through fears. She will show how the arc of a story is very similar to the arc of emotions felt when experiencing fear and anxiety. She will engage participants in several activities that encourage kids to take the power back from fear. Lindsay will leave ample time for Q&A.

Please Note: Online preregistration is required. This event is for children ages 5-9 and their caregiver.  A parent or caregiver must be present with their child during this virtual event. For more information, please contact the children’s reference desk at 512.218.3275.
