|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!

What's Ms. Barbara reading?
The Island of Sea Women, by Lisa See
"In my 'Mending Wall' was my intention fulfilled with the characters portrayed and the atmosphere of the place? […] I should be sorry if a single one of my poems stopped with either of those things—stopped anywhere in fact. My poems—I should suppose everybody's poems—are all set to trip the reader head foremost into the boundless. Ever since infancy I have had the habit of leaving my blocks, carts, chairs, and such like ordinaries where people would be pretty sure to fall forward over them in the dark. Forward, you understand, and in the dark. I may leave my toys in the wrong place and so in vain. It is my intention we are speaking of—my innate mischievousness."
Quoted in Robert Frost and the New England Renaissance, by George Monteiro
