Congratulations to Beth Casper, our March Kid Reader of the Month!  As a young child, her favorite book was 10 Little Ladybugs by Melanie Gerth, but now, at 13 years old and in 7th grade, some of Beth’s favorite books include the Warriors series by Erin Hunter, and the Wolves of the Beyond series by Kathryn Lasky.  The books she most recommends, however, are the Smile books by Raina Telgemeier - she finds them very fun and relatable.  In addition to reading, Beth loves animals, especially the rabbits that she raises.  She also shows animals for 4-H, and enjoys going to the zoo.  She hopes to someday be a vet tech or a rabbit breeder.

To nominate someone for Kid Reader of the Month, you can access the form on our website:, through our Facebook page (here’s the direct link that will take you to the online form:), or fill out a paper nomination form at the library.  All winners will have their picture in the paper, along with a short interview.

Be sure to take a peek at all of the colorful artwork decorating our walls for the month of April!  Brought to us by the Seymour Women’s Club Art Show, it showcases works of art from both Black Creek and Seymour Middle Schools.
