90 Second Newbert logo

90 Second Newbery Videos

Visit Tredyffrin Township Libraries YouTube Page to view our 90 second versions of Newbery award winning books. The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is an annual video contest in which young filmmakers create weird short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books in about a minute and a half. Anyone can enter! In past years we have created films based on Charlotte’s Web by E.B White, 26 Fairmount Avenue by Tomie DePaola and this year we created 90 seconds of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. We will keep you posted with the dates and times of the official viewing of our film in New York City at the New York Public Library.

 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Join the Worm on books1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Club at Tredyffrin Public Library! Read 1,000 books with your child before he or she enters school–a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves. One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation—a key to school and learning success. Plus, sharing stories together is fun! To sign up, stop by the library or call 610-688-7092 x210. For more information, please email Angie at aandre@ccls.org.
