D97 Elementary Library News

September 2015

The love of libraries, like most loves, must be learned. –Alberto Manguel

Welcome back to the 2015-2016 School Year!

We are thrilled to be including the entire community of District 97 - patrons, families and staff in our monthly newsletters. Each month, two different teacher librarians will collaborate to bring you great information to highlight the experiences our students have in our elementary school libraries. We hope you find this information useful and value any feedback that you care to share.
