Library Corner: September 19, 2017
Posted on 09/19/2017

Mark your calendars for our November book fair: November 13-16. We need volunteers before, during, and after the fair.

Second grade: Second graders bring their library books home, and it is important that they remember to return them! look for a letter in your child's backpack asking you and your child to decide on a place to keep your library books at home. Once you send that letter back, your child can begin checking out books. Also look for a handmade magnet to put on your fridge to remind you what day they have library.

Fourth and fifth graders can participate in the Massachusetts Childrens' Book Award this year! This is a program where children choose an award-winning title. There are twenty five books on the list, and if your child reads five of them, s/he can vote for the award-winning book! Here is all the information you need >>

Here is the list of books: We have multiple copies of these in the library, but many of them are already checked out, so look for them at the public library and bookstores!
