Raising A Reader’s mission is to engage caregivers in a routine of book sharing with their children to foster healthy brain development, healthy relationships, a love of reading, and the literacy skills critical for school success. Participants will enjoy a storytime together. Adults will learn some early literacy practices they can use at home with their child. Families check out a red bag of paperback books to read at home together and exchange it for a new bag of books each week. *Registration is required for this eight week session, running from October 4 - November 22.Provided by Family Access of Newton.

After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his daughter in River Heights. But for 16-year-old Nancy Drew, life in a small town is mighty dull. She longs for excitement, adventure, and the chance to make a difference. Nancy gets that opportunity when she is asked to help solve the ghostly activity at the Twin Elms mansion. Can she help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding light bulbs and the ominous creature? Is it the handiwork of high-school bully Derek Barnes? Or is it possible that the ghost of original owner Malcolm Colfax is back for revenge? Recruiting her best friends George and Bess, along with local “mean girl” Helen, Nancy Drew is on the case! Sponsored by the Needham Free Public Library.
