Xavier helps CCPL kids create Minecraft masterpieces

Guest Blog: Puppy Tales makes reading fun for reluctant reader

By Christie Fillhardt, Secretary, Campbell County Public Library Board of Trustees

Wilma & Buddy after Puppy Tales

Wilma & Buddy after Puppy Tales

My son, Buddy Fillhardt, absolutely loves visiting with Wilma, the rescue dog when she takes her appearances at the Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch for the program Puppy Tales.

One thing my son doesn’t like to do as much is to read, but he will read several books during his time with Wilma, as Wilma loves to be read to! A beautiful Saturday afternoon and my son’s main agenda is to go to the library and participate in the Puppy Tales program.

Wilma ‘s owner, Linda Miller, and Joyce Emery, Children’s Programmer at Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch, really go out of their way to make this program a success. We have so much fun with it.

My son likes the program so much, he even uses the library’s app to register himself for the next session or for other programs he is interested in attending. He is getting a great overview of how useful the app can be, while learning more about technology.

Minecraft Club welcomes Twitch sensation

A special treat awaits teens and tweens at Minecraft Club, 5 pm Feb. 8 at Cold Spring; online star Darkosto live via Twitch stream!

Darkosto, known for his Minecraft Modpack Journey to the Core, will talk about making YouTube videos and coding the game packs he created.

Darkosto has almost 30 videos on his YouTube channel, most being how-to guides for mods and his own Modpacks. Most of his content is via Twitch.

Darkosto, looking forward to his virtual visit, recently took time to answer a few questions:

How long he’s been YouTubing?

Twitch stream began Aug. 8, 2014 and YouTube channel Sep. 3, 2014.

Number of hours a week spent doing this?

48-65 just streaming, with an average of 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. Including off-stream, 60-75 hours.

What’s a healthy time limit for a child/tween to devote to gaming/YouTube?

The former teacher suggests 1/2 hour a day, but socializing can be a good way for an introvert (like him) to make friends in a safe environment.

What does he read?

Malcolm Gladwell and anything that focuses on sociology and psychology, as well as biographies about society’s “outliers.”

Games he plays for enjoyment:

Fallout 4, Factorio, Seven Days to Die, Skyrim, GTA, Space Engineers and The Binding of Isaac.

Register to save a spot on the limited Library laptops or bring your own.

Ages 8-19.
