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!

The Tiny Hero of Ferny Creek Library, by Linda Bailey
Part of what makes paper a brilliant technology may be, in fact, that it offers us so much and no more. A small child cannot tap the duck and elicit a quack; for that, the child needs to turn to a parent. And when you cannot tap the picture of the horse and watch it gallop across the page, you learn that your brain can make the horse move as fast as you want it to, just as later on it will show you the young wizards on their broomsticks, and perhaps even sneak you in among them.
