One of the many services the Kherson Oblast Children’s Library offers to the community is to visit area schools.

I, along with the librarians from the Department of Foreign Literature, help to enrich the lessons the children are learning. We provide English language practice and offer books that can help the children learn English and learn about America and its history.

Below are some of the photos we took while visiting area schools. As you will see, we made many visits last year as well as this year.

We enjoy talking to the children of Kherson and learn as much from them as we hope they learn from us.

Two black cats - Anya and Deborah!

What a wonderful time we had at the Kherson Oblast Children’s Library  Halloween Party!  

We had more than 50 people attend our Halloween Party, which was led by 2 very friendly black cats – Anya and me, Deborah.

Take a look at the pictures below…they tell you the story of our Halloween fun!

We had a “best costume” contest and played games like making a mummy out of toilet paper.

The winners of our "Create a Mummy" contest.

  Above are the winners of our “Make the Best Mummy” contest.

We  “bobbed for apples” and almost everyone got an apple and got a little wet.

Our Halloween Party guests came in wonderful costumes!

Our games included monster and skeleton puzzles, making new words from the letters in Jack O Lantern and guessing how much candy was in the candy jars.

And after we were finished our party, we went “Trick or Treating” in every department of the Library….yum yum….lots of candy!
