Tuesday, October 25, the library will be in use all day for vision and hearing screening. No regular class visits, circulation, or browsing will be possible that day because the screening requires quiet. Several classes have rescheduled to different days, so your children may want to keep their books in their backpacks so they'll be able to return them whenever they visit the library.
We are still looking forward to the arrival of books ordered from Scholastic. They will be distributed ASAP.
The County of Los Angeles Public Library's bookmark contest is drawing to a close. The last day to turn in bookmark designs is Monday, October 31.
