2017 Reading Program

We've reached the end of this Year's Reading Program and are counting up the minutes to see if we have met our goal. Thanks to all who participated!
Here's a link to the video with instructions for Week 4's thank-you gift.

Power up for the POWER OF READING!

The Power of Reading

The 2017 Reading Program runs from April 9-May 8. This year, we are turning our minutes into light! We are working with a group called Liter of Light which is lighting up homes and streets around the world using empty soda bottles and the sun. For every minute we read, we will empower them to light a solar bottle light for 10 minutes. Click here to find out more!

Author Visit

Author Kate Hannigan joined us for a terrific day on April 5th. She engaged 4th, 5th and 6th graders with her stories and thoughts about reading, writing, research and resilience. She also shared her "scroll of doom" a 65 foot compilation of the many rejection letters she got on the way to becoming a successful author.


Book spine label poetry is gathering some interesting titles and stacking them to make a short poem. Check out some of our examples on the big display table in the library. Feel inspired? Make your own and share it with us.

Dr. Seuss's Birthday

March 2 was Dr. Seuss's birthday and we celebrated with seussian fun - some of our favorite Seuss books and a chance to get into the character of that pesky Cat in the Hat.
