From the Library Learning Commons...

BOOK CLUB will not meet this week.

January is game month in the Library! If you want to play Jenga/checkers/chess/puzzles or just want to hang with a good book, grab a lunch pass from the cafeteria (ask your teacher for permission) and join us in the Library for both your lunch and recess (40 minutes!). There are only 12 passes available, first come, first serve.

If you have a book that you have finished reading, please bring it back to the Library the first chance you get. Lots of kids are looking for great reads!

90-Second Newbery Project

(Blurb written by Mr. Frank Baker): In The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival, kids make short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books (adult help OK!). It's been going on for 10 years, with screenings all over the country. Perfect family or school project!

Deadlines are in February 2022.
