LAYNE II i"l' Ilmll I GENERAL MANAGER EDITOR OFFICE MANAGER "Your Child and Some suggestions In observance of "American Education Week," November 11-17, Glenville Junior Women's Club is printing a series of three articles entitled "Your Child and Televi- sion." Television has become an American In- stitution and has received much criticism in recent times. The series of articles is designed to promote selective viewing of televi- sion. "Your Child and Television" is intended to aid parents in learning how to select suitable television programs for their children's viewing. Includ- ed will be suggestions for discussing television pro- grams with children. The first two articles are reprints from the American Medical Association Aux- iliary, Inc. Article Number 1 consists of suggestions for parents in supervising children's television view- ing. Article Number 2 con- sists of guidelines to be us- ed in discussing television programs with children and questions to be used in selecting suitable pro- grams for viewing. Article Number 3 will concern sug- gestions for using TV Guide program listings to plan weekly viewing. Television is here to stay. Rather than say "Love it or leave it," a probable solu- tion is to educate our children in ways that they may benefit from all the Mr. and Mrs. Larry Jenkins of Baldwin are proud to an- nounce the arrival of their first child, a son.

News from your Gilmer Public Library y m||m "Be With a Book For a Day," a nationwide support program for the White House Conference on Libraries and Information Services, is surging across America with sponsorship from Chief Officers of State Library Agencies. The program's goal is to en- courage all Americans to spend the day with a book and to become more aware of the nation's libraries, especially during the White House Conference, November 15-19. As a visual aid, over 50,000,000 emblems depicting the White House on an open book will be distributed in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and the Virgin Islands. According to Frederic J. Glazer, Director of the West Virginia Library Commission and originator of the "Be With A Book" Program, there are enough emblems for each of the 51,168,599 families in America. Another way of stating just how massive the 50,000,000 distribution will be is that the one inch square stickers end to end would cover 789.14 miles. Elected officials, na- tional leaders, authors, and entertainers will be tell- ing the rest of the country what book they will be with. The nation's message to the White House Con- ference group will be found in the hands of book car- riers of all ages, where ever libraries are located. If you would like to show your support for the Gilmer Public Library and libraries in general, pick up a "Be With A Book For A Day" sticker at the Library and wear it on your lapel. Carry your favorite book with you when you shop or go anywhere November 15-19. Support your local Library!! There were many happy children circulating on Trick or Treat night, Tuesday, October 30 with their "Delta zeta painted faces." The DZ's turned out en force to contribute to Library services by making kids happy. The face paint used was made out of kit- chensupplies and was very safe. Some of the pain- tings were real works of art and it was amazing how effectively the paint camouflaged faces into Trick or Treat material. The kids had a good time and so did everyone else!! Thank you DZs. Pick up your PBS Station's radio and TV guide for the month of November the next time you come in. These free guides are available at the Library at the beginning of each month. We would like to thank Miss Alice Arbuckle for contributing cookies for the Story Hour this past Wednesday. The kids loved them Miss Alice!! We will be showing some great films this week. Our next film is a "mystery film" that we are not allowed to announce by title. Do you know what it is by guessing the following? 1. What film was set in the Alps with main characters goat herders? 2. Do you remember "Grandfather" and "Peter"? This film is taken from the book of the same title by Johanna Spyri. The movie is said to appeal to all ages. We will be showing our film in Cox's Mills at the Community Center on Thursday, November 8 at 6:30 and in Glen- ville at the Library on Saturday, November 10 at 1. We welcome Bonnie Wiseman to our library staff and are glad to have her after her California vacation. She will be working for us part-time. Barbara Radcliffe, who has been helping us temporarily, will only be with us on a volunteer basis now. We so very much appreciate all her good work in October and are sorry to be seeing her less in the future. Thank you Barbara! b P PICTURED ABOVE are the Livi pear at an All Night Center on Saturday, N p.m. the sing will also The Masters, as well Refreshments will be IDEAS FOR Because Simple Solar "the drop at ature. more or the You can benefit from solar heating, even though it's not a part of your and present house, should You can add it, and in a way that will offer you other benefits. Architect Donald Watson of the Yale School of Architecture suggests one of the most effective ways of doing this is by building a lean-to greenhouse on one (preferably the south) side of your house. ! Writing in "]Dee~Czdz~ and Building t a Solar House," Watson describes greenhouses as "live-in solar collectors that provide living and garden space ~ ):. and, when properly designed, also can (~ be used to provide heat, fresh air, and i~-: humidity" to existing homes. I:- :~ Greenhouses have many advantages as passive solar heating units. ,They can be added easily to most homes. and will improve not only their looks but their resale value. They are not as In expensive as extensive remodeling of your home (but count on spending at least $1,000 if you buy a lean-to). It is easy to move heat from them into your home. A system of ducts, or a door, or window, possibly with an elec- both tric fan linked with one of these, is all house, that is needed. Equally important, you can close off a greenhouse, so that heat mas, from the home is not lost at night, or unwanted heat is not taken into the home during the summer. To gain even more heat benefits from and the greenhouses, some architects and heal homeowners add heat storage units, such as rock or water units, so that the heat of the day is available during the night, either in the greenhouse itself or in the home. If you've thought of a greenhouse as = an energy-wasting unit, look at the ; offerings of manufacturers today.

How you operate the greenhouse depends on whether you use it solely for heat, or for raising plants as well. Next ~ \ / J
