|Aurelia Pennekamp Elementary School Library||
The library is open this week although most classes are not visiting. The minimum day schedule interferes with the usual class visit schedule, and furthermore, classes will be spending time visiting our fabulous winter book fair. The classes that do visit are hearing books about snow. January and February are such busy months in the library, what with the California Young Reader Medal nominees as well as the schoolwide Literacy Event, there's really no other time to talk about snow--and make sure our California kids know what it is!

"Americans went to the library an average of 10.5 times in 2019, beating out trips to movie theaters, sporting events, national parks, museums, and zoos. According to a new Gallup poll, libraries were almost twice as popular as movie theaters and ten times as popular as zoos."
