"One Book Blitz" Book Announced Feb. 4

You’ve been reading the book, now come out and have interactive fun at the library! We can’t reveal the name of the “One Book Blitz” 2019 book until it is publicly announced on Feb. 4, but we can promise you a fun day of games, STEAM activities and crafts. The One Book Blitz event takes place in the Meeting Room hallway, the Main Gallery and the Children’s Library.

Join us for a celebration of penguins and polar explorers! Whether you're reading One Book Blitz's Mr. Popper's Penguins or just want to have fun learning about these funny, fascinating creatures and their world, you'll love Pole to Pole!
Specific events include:
10:30 a.m.-2 p.m.: Matthew Henson's Expedition Scavenger Hunt: Join African-American polar explorer on a hunt for polar creatures through the library! Pick up your ticket at the Children's Library desk. (Prizes for the first 144 children to complete the hunt.)
10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.: Screenings of March of the Penguins in the Sharon Lawson Room. This stirring documentary changed the way we think about penguins. (The movie is rated G but does contain some scenes of animal peril.)
11 a.m.-2 p.m.: Penguin Fest in the Main Gallery and the Children's Library
Get a balloon penguin (or other creation!) and visit with volunteers from the Knoxville Zoo to learn all about real penguins. Make penguin-themed crafts.
