Reading is Fundamental!

For those who may be wondering, RIF is still in affect! Its been slow this year and our supply of books has dwindled, but the good news is, we've ordered lots of new titles from the recommended reading lists put out by Library Media Services. I'm hoping to have our order in and be ready to give lots of free books to our kiddos soon!

Class Sets

An up date for those of you who requested class sets of books for your classrooms using the Google Form in the last edition of State Agency Library News, I received the quotes from Carmichael's Bookstore and I have submitted the requests. I'm hoping they have been ordered and as soon as we get them in I will get them to you!

Thanks for your patience!
