Students in DK, Kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grades will be hearing books related to Saint Patrick's Day. DK did not have time for their baseball books last week, so we will do them this week. 1st grade will be hearing about the remarkable folk artist Grandma Prisbrey and her bottle village, in honor of Women's History Month. The bottle village is located in Simi Valley and can be visited, but reservations are required. Sadly, the village is somewhat deteriorated, but preservation efforts are ongoing.
The book club for grades 4 and 5 will be meeting this week, on Wednesday, March 16. Pre-enrollment is required. This month's selection is Igraine the Brave, by Cornelia Funke.
Next week the library will be closed from 8 to noon on Thursday, March 24, and all day Friday, March 25. I must attend training sessions at that time to support our new circulation and cataloging software. Classes that normally visit the library during those times have been rescheduled, as follows:
Barney: Wednesday, March 23, 12:20-12:45
Rumble: Thursday, March 24, 12:10-12:45
Harding: Thursday, March 24, 2:15-2:45
Warner: Monday, March 21, 2:15-2:45
