Teen Reads APRIL 2018

E. Frank Bayer, LMS

April is Spring, Poetry Month, School Library Month, Financial Literacy Month and the Celebration of National Peach Cobbler Day!

Although the weather has been filled with a "wintery mix," spring has officially arrived!

Celebrate Poetry Month with writing your own poetry, borrowing a book from our exciting new collection of business and entreprenuership books and joining the celebration by making some peach pie on April 13th, National Peach Cobbler Day!

Condoleezza Clarke is on her way to becoming a Chef!!

Congratulations to Condoleezza, who won First Prize in the Recipe Rescue Competiton held at the Institute for Culinary Competition in Battery Park City. Condoleezza took her favorite dish, lasagne, and made it healthier by adding lots of fresh vegetables.
