Maybe you remember being a
little kid, walking out of the library
with ,1 stack of books propped under
your chin. You lumed in a mountain
of books every week - and cheeked
out another pile every time.
Well, the scene hasn't changed
much. The Allen County Public Li-
brary children's department is still
full of books - some 400,000 of them.
in fact, located at the main branch.
Now that the library has finished its
nuilii-million dollar renovation, all
these books and more .ire available to
Librarian Mary Voors, who has
worked at the ACPL for 25 years, is
a pillar of the children's department.
"(It's) the best place to work," she
said. Librarians must have a master's
degree in library science, although
some librarians also have back-
grounds in other fields, like cduca-
"Our library system is very, very,
very committed to pre -literacy," said
Voors. The ACPL was one of the first
libraries in the country with a chil-
dren's section 1 he department origi-
nally opened in 1907.
The 2007 children's department
was designed through the collabora-
tion of children's librarians from the
ACPL system and the community
who were "(c)ommitled to having a
very dynamic and active children's
department." said Voors. hxamplesot
their innovation include a gian
tank system that has two salt
tanks and one reef tank; a computer
room; a playhouse; short shelves lor
young patrons and an early learning
center where children and grow
interact in a learning-saturated
ronmenl. "There is no technology of
any kind in there,"' mentioned Voors.
"(only) face-to-face interaction be-
tween mom and dad and child."
The early learning center is for
preschool -aged children and adults.
Special areas in the center include a
writing center, a drama comer and
many reading nooks where chil-
dren can read with adults. Children
are encouraged to explore narrative
skills, letter knowledge, print aware-
ness, print motivation, phonological
awareness and vocabulary. In the
past, children have done this by cre-
ating alphabets, telling stories and
showing interest in books. "Kids
have to have (a) phonological refer-
ence," said Voors, highlighting pan
of the center's curriculum. In Febru-
ary alone, 6,218 people visited the
Center. There is no sign up sheet;
however, an adult must constantly be
present with his or her child.

But He Dies in the Middle.
At his crucifixion, not even Jesus' closest followers would have called him a hero. The
man they thought was the Messiah was being executed. End of hopes. End of dream.
But then something happened. Three days later, his body was not in its burial tomb.
That night, he physically appeared to his disciples. He showed them all of the Scriptures that
foretold that he would die for the forgiveness of sins and then rise from the dead.
Jesus is the hero we needed..,the Savior who offers us eternal life and a chance to know
God personally. To know more, see the feature article BEYOND BLIND FAITH at
