New Year- means RESOLUTIONS

The new year begins a new chapter in the lives of everyone. New goals, new adventures, new beginnings. With this new year, I challenge you to start something new, change something to make new, or set a goal. A resolution is simply just a firm decision…a goal that betters yourself or something for someone else. What's your RESOLUTION?

Susan Stevens Crummel- visiting author

Susan Stevens Crummel was our visiting author January 23rd and can I just say she was fantastic! She brought so much energy and shared the story behind her stories she co-writes with her sister Janet Stevens. We were well entertained, laughing, screaming, and acting out skits from her books. She has written 17 books with her sister and we hope she has many more. Check out her website www.susanstevenscrummel.com and check out her book trailer for Little Red Pen.


We are the Vestavia Hills Elementary West Library and we host more than 11,000 award winning titles and great books. We are on a fixed schedule where students visit once a week with their class, but the library is open all through the day (7:30-3:30) for individual and group checkouts and our classes stop in all the time to check out and to grab books for research and for enjoyment reading. Parents are encouraged to stop in and grab an account to check out books as well. See you soon.
