Read, Read, Read!

Spring Break is coming, and we want to remind you to take time to READ! Students have many ways to access books during their vacation. Each student has their own Anderson 5 username and password, and this information can be used to log into our electronic books. Students can also visit the Anderson County Library to find a world of knowledge, and participate in their special events. Go to http://www.andersonlibrary.org/events/events-for-kids/ to find out what events the library has to offer.
