The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is proud to host nationally recognized author Ben Mikaelson as he shares his presentation “Finding the Heart of the Story” tonight, March 9th, 6:30 pm, in the Kozak Community Room.
We were so honored to host the Jolley third graders as they stopped in for a visit this morning. In their “One Team, One Dream” goal of reading a million minutes during the school year, they are traveling to different reading spots around our community.
Now that’s a goal we can get behind!
Spring Storytime sessions begin next Monday, January 12th – which is right around the corner!
If you’ve not yet registered your child, there is still time (but not much). Registration is required and space is limited! Register online by clicking on the Storytime link above, and then on the ‘Register Here’ link beside the desired date/time slot.

My wife Barbara and I have many cherished memories of going with our children to the Vermillion Public Library. It was there that our children’s love of reading blossomed, and ours grew as well.
To honor these fond memories, Barbara and I are donating this statue as a thank you to the Vermillion community.
I received this statue from the School Administrators of South Dakota in recognition of my steadfast support and commitment to education. Literacy plays a critical role in giving children the skills they need to succeed in school and in their future careers. The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is a place where children and adults can broaden their horizons through books, educational programming, technology, and guidance from library staff.
Over the years, I have proudly displayed this statue in my Senate office in Washington, D.C. It has greeted countless South Dakotans, public officials, foreign dignitaries, and other guests as they visited my office, and it has served as a constant reminder of the importance of education. I am glad this statue has found a new home and hope it will help inspire young readers.
K-5th grade can get a preview of this year’s Prairie Bud and Prairie Pasque Nominees. South Dakota Children’s Book Awards are divided into Prairie Bud, K-2nd grades, and Prairie Pasque, 3-5th grades. Come join the fun, as we will watch book trailers, discuss the best books, have popcorn, and more!
The annual South Dakota Children’s Book Awards nominations provide a list of books that is fitting for both instructional and recreational reading. Connections can be made between the Common Core State Standards for ELA and Literacy across all content areas as well as reading for enjoyment. Students are encouraged to read at least five books from the list of nominees and vote for their favorite book from those titles. The books receiving the most votes from the students win the awards. A committee of educators and librarians select the books nominated for the awards. Each child can vote only once. Deadline for voting is March 31, 2015. Winners will be announced in April during National Library Week.
