It's been a long hard ride, got a ways to go, this is still the place,
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. -John F. Kennedy

Children's Book Week is May 13th - 19th. This is the week where we celebrate reading and books. Reading can take place anywhere, in schools, libraries, even at home. The Children's Choice Book Award is announced during the week. This is the only national book award where you get to vote! Go to http://www.bookweekonline.com/about to find out more about Children's Book Week and how to vote for your favorite books.

To help celebrate Children's Book Week the library has a Book Swap cart so students can "swap" a book for a different one. Any chapter book is fine, as long as it is gently used and grade appropriate. The Book Swap cart is located in the library hallway.

With May we start to think about the end of the school year and many of our students still have overdue library books. If you happen to be one of these students please return your books to the library before late notices have to go home. If a library book is lost it must be replaced with a new book. If you have any questions please feel free to stop in and see me, or send me an email.
