School begins today, and so do regular library hours. The library is open every school day: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:15 to 3:00; Wednesday from 8:15 to 1:30.
The library is ready to check books in and out, to students and parents.
Class visits begin the week of September 10, 2012.
The schedule of class visits is pretty much finalized. You can view it here.
It was great meeting so many Pennekamp families at the Expo this morning. I am working on the library volunteer schedule. Thanks to everyone for being so supportive of the library!
The 5th-grade book club will begin next Thurdsay, September 6. The 4th-grade book club will begin Thursday, September 20. This year I will choose the book club selections, which will be announced at the club meetings. Thanks to Melissa Messner, children's librarian at the Manhattan Beach branch of the County of Los Angeles Public Library, for working to obtain copies of the book club book for Pennekamp students. Please note, it is rare that the public library can supply enough copies for all participants, so please consider purchasing your own copy if you can afford to do so.
I wish you a wonderful school year!
