WEST ORANGE, NJ - As part of the  Downtown West Orange Alliance Holiday weekend, the West Orange Public Library hosted their annual "Reading in a Winter Wonderland" event on Saturday. Although the Old Fashioned Christmas Tree Lighting  has been rescheduled to December 14, downtown Saturday events went ahead as previously scheduled.  Family Story time at WOPL will also be presented on Monday December 17th at 7pm.

Books were read by Head Children’s Librarian, Faith Boyle.  The library regularly does story times with different themes for each. This story time theme was birds and changing weather.  The books read included 7 Hungry Babies and How Rocket Learned to Read. Following the story time, children created their own holiday bird feeders.

The event was enjoyed by everyone  as children actively listened and interacted with Faith throughout the reading. During the reading there was a quick fun activity for the children to participate in.  Parents and children both enjoyed the opportunity to come together to hear some great stories.  Faith Boyle believes “It’s a nice community program and the story time tradition for families to come together to kick off the holiday season.”

Would Shedding

How much wood wouldn’t a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck woodn’t?

 

Enough already.  

 

I get it.  It is an easy mistake to make, misusing would and wouldn’t.  It happens to me all the time.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
