Books of Wonder Author Event. FiDi Families is very excited to welcome author Jennifer Malone to Books of Wonder. She is the author or a Simon & Schuster novel for kids ages 8 – 13 called At Your Service, which features Chloe, an extremely proud NYC native, who lives alongside her concierge father at the fancy (and fictional) Hotel St. Michele. The story features Chloe and her adventures around the City including her search for a visiting princess, who she accidentally loses. It’s a great story that will make NYC kids proud of the City they call home and is a great reminder of why we all love the Big Apple.
Miss Malone will be participating in an author event entitled “Only in NYC” alongside three other authors who have penned NYC-centric books. Other featured authors include Marcia Wells (Eddie Undercover, Mystery on Museum Mile, HMH Books for Young Readers, 2014) Laura Marx Fitzgerald (Under the Egg, Dial, 2014) and Julie Salamon (Cat in the City, Dial, 2014)

Music Makers and Story Shakers Storytime. The Battery Park City Branch is New York Public Library’s first green LEED certified branch in Manhattan. The Battery Park City Library hosts many programs that are great for children of all ages. And, introducing them to the library at an early age, encourages a love of books. Little listeners can enjoy great books, lively songs and rhymes, and meet other children from the neighborhood. Storytime is a great way to encourage listening skills, vocabulary and imagination.
Bring your imagination and get creative! Listen to a story and create a hands-on musical project. In this four-week series we will “travel” to four different points on the globe and create musical instruments from those countries. This program will take place on the second floor of the library.
