School Library Month
What do you LOVE most about your library media center at LMES? Drop a note into the blue box on the library checkout desk throughout the month of April. If Mrs. Matney picks your response, you can be a guest on the morning news show and get a surprise!
Please go to this link and sign the declaration to support libraries. This is a national initiative of the American Library Association to include those who feel strongly about the importance of having public and school libraries. Visibly declare your right to have vibrant libraries in your community!
