On Thursday, April 21, staff members from the Roundhouse Marine Studies Lab and Aquarium will be visiting the library to talk about caring for the ocean environment. Classes who come to library on Thursday (Barney, Rumble, Price, and Moreno) will be treated to this special event.
Many new books are being added to the library's collection this week and next. Click here to see what's new in our library.
The book club meets this Wednesday, April 20, from 1:30 to 2:30 in the library. Our selection this time (chosen by the club participants) is Keeper, by Kathi Appelt, a 2011 Newbery Honor book. We will have one more club meeting this year and will choose our next book from the district's list of books recommended for pleasure reading for students entering grades 4 and 5. Our club members who are currently in grade 5 are encouraged to consult the list of books for students entering grade 6, of which each student is required to read three. Before grade 6, all district reading lists are simply for students' pleasure reading--suggested books on these lists are not required.
