Library Card Month

Westridge Elementary School kindergarten students attended a presentation on Library Card Month by Paul Sawyier Public Library on September 19th, 2017. Students learned about the importance of having a library card, what services PSPL offers, and each child received an application for a library card to Paul Sawyier Public Library.

ANNUAL WESTRIDGE FACULTY & STAFF BOOKNIC

Library Lunch Bunch In Full Swing

Lunch Bunch has officially started! For the past 11 years, 4th & 5th grade students have had the option to participate in Library Lunch Bunch. During Lunch Bunch, students bring their lunches to the library in order to hear a novel of their choice while they eat. They attend each day until the novel is complete. Since boys and girls often like different types of novels, the genders are separated to make the experience even more exciting and special. This year, the 5th grade girls are reading The Girl Who Drank The Moon by: Kelly Barnhill. The 4th grade boys are reading Benjamin Franklinstein Lives! by: Matthew McElligott.
