The Department of Foreign Literature has a new, smiling face – Anya!

Anya is our new librarian. You will find her working in the Foreign Literature Department, which also houses Window on America.

Anya recently graduated from the Ukraine State University where she studied English and Ukrainian languages.

When she is not working, Anya likes to read, spend time with her family and friends, work on the computer, listen to music and watch interesting movies.

Come and say hello to Anya and see what is new in the Kherson Oblast Children’s Library.

Our new librarian, Anya

English Clubs are back! October 21, 2010

School is back in session and guess what? So are the English Clubs!

English Clubs have started again at the Kherson Oblast Children’s Library. Every other Sunday, we have three English Clubs – 10 a.m. for beginners, 11 a.m. for mid-level or middle school children and noon for advanced speakers.

Last Sunday we had lots of fun talking about Autumn in Ukraine. If you did not make it, take a look at the pictures below to see of the things we did. We:

  • talked about the seasons of the year
  • discussed what we like about Autumn
  • played Jeopardy – a fun game that helps us learn new English words while competing to earn points
  • decorated our word-tree with lots of leaves
  • and the most fun of all was bowling!

Join us on October 31 for our annual Halloween Party. There will be lots of games and fun and candy, of course.

We hope to see you on the third floor of the Kherson Children’s Library at 10 a.m. on October 31.

The Children's Librarian, Ira, talks with students about the seasons of the year.

We colored and decorated leaves for our "word tree."

Our English Club students! What a smart group!
