Kent District Library to Take Your Old American Flags

Many of us have an American Flag, and we display it proudly.  But, after many years, maybe yours is a bit worn, tattered, or even thread bare.

What do you do with an old flag, anyway.  Out of respect, you don't just throw it in the trash, do you?

KDL Offering Free Computer Classes

Here is something cool when it comes to computers.

If you're like me, I know just enough to be dangerous.  Yes, I can work my way through many computer tasks, after all, in broadcasting I'm working with computers all day, in the studio, in my office, when I'm on the phone, or remote broadcasts.

But, for a lot of folks, the opportunities aren't always there, so it's difficult to "stay-on-pace,"  to keep up with technology.

It’s Yucky, Icky, Oozy, Mushy, but Kids Will Love It!

Yuck, that's gross!  Yuck, that's icky!  And, your kids love it!

Let's be honest, if it’s on the gross, icky side, kids tend to love it.  But, you know what, it can be a lot of fun, and there’s a lot to learn from stuff that’s snotty, stinky, oozy and mushy.

KDL’s Teen Poetry Contest Winners

Earlier this year I wrote about the Kent District Library's Word Wise, KDL’s ninth annual teen poetry contest. It was open to all, aspiring, teem poets.

Well, it's in the books, and it was once again a huge success thanks to all the great teen poets out there.  This year there were about 200 entries that the KDL staff reviewed.  Once they narrowed down the entries, the "official" judge, David Cope took over.  David is a creative writing professor at Grand Rapids Community College as well as the current Grand Rapids Poet Laureate. He selected 7 winners and 1 honorable mention. Congratulations to the winning poets!  Here they are.
