March Newsletter for the NPES Community


We have a lot to look foward to this month in the NPES Learning Commons!

  • March 2 is Dr. Seuss' birthday and we will be celebrating February 25 - March 1 with Seuss themed centers and displays throughout the library.

  • D’Etta Broam (PHES School Counselor) and I will host a Healthy Mind & Body Workshop for Biggest Loser folks (and anyone else who might want to join) on Wednesday, March 27 from 3pm – 4pm in the NPES Learning Commons. We’ll do some yoga and share some healthy snack/lifestyle ideas.

  • We are gearing up for a busy April...be sure to mark your calendars for our author visit (April 10); Meet @ Main (April 18); and the Columbia Blowfish Reading Program (the whole month of April!)
