|Aurelia Pennekamp Elementary School Library||
Through the generosity of the MBEF, the Pacific Elementary library will be open this summer to meet the reading needs of MBUSD students. Any MBUSD student can use this library over the summer. The district library media specialists will take turns staffing the library; my weeks will be those of July 8 and July 15. The Pacific Elementary library will be open from June 24 to August 2, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. (closed on July 4). Hope to see you there!

Scary Stories for Young Foxes, by Christian McKay Heidicker
"Anyone who writes down to children is simply wasting his time. Children are demanding. They are the most attentive, curious, eager, observant, sensitive, quick, and generally congenial readers on earth. They accept, almost without question, anything you present them with, as long as it is presented honestly, fearlessly, and clearly."
