Our Library Website & New Ebooks
While I would love to have each and every one of you back in the library, our safety measures are helping us to reach you safely. I have put together a website for our library, and we have purchased some subscriptions to digital ebooks that are ready for you to access. (The username for Bookflix will be sent in an email or posted somewhere for our Bulldog Community to easily access.) You can find the links to those resources, as well as other fun things to "check out," and the collection of past Smore flyers, should you need them. And the good news? There's still lots more to come! Click below to check it out & stay up-to-date on the latest in the library.
Keep Creating, Bulldogs!
One of the things I miss most is seeing all of you take the time to create, problem solve, and work together in our library makerspace. There's no reason to stop making wonderful creations though! Below are a few things that you, your family, and friends might want to try, wherever you might be. If you do, I would LOVE to see it, so be sure to send some pictures or video of your October fun to my email at the bottom of this Smore.
Read on, Makers, for some great ideas...

PumpKINDNESS with JJK
Jarrett J. Krosoczka is a Bulldog favorite, writing many wonderful picture books, like Punk Farm and Annie Was Warned, and the iconic graphic novel series Lunch Lady. He and his wife, Gina, have introduced the idea of sharing painted pumpkins with others, safely, this Halloween. Learn more about it on his YouTube channel below to take part and spread some "pumpKINDNESS" this Halloween.
When illustrator Jake Parker thought up Inktober over 10 years ago, he hoped it would be a way for artists to improve their skills. Now, every October, an official list of prompts is released, and everyone is encouraged to make a drawing illustrating that word for the day. Some people share their work online on various social media accounts, others share it with those in their circle of trust. I've found that it is a wonderful way to challenge the brain for a bit, to think of a way to interpret a given word, and practice a little art with the rest of the world. If you'd like to participate, here is the list of prompts for this year. Stay safe, and do not post anything without first getting your parent’s permission.
