LETTERS FROM THE LIBRARY

May 2015

WHAT’S HAPPENING?

Wow!  Garfield’s wishes came true for both the Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Awards and the Sasquatch Reading Award.  Congratulations to The Day the Crayons Quit for winning the WCCPBA Award and to Wonder for winning Sasquatch!

ALL GRADES: During the month of April, we celebrated National Poetry Month by participating in poetry-themed centers in the library.  Students wrote a variety of poems, from Found Poetry on the iPads to shape poems for the Poet-Tree.  You can check out some of their work in the gallery above this post.IMG_2106

Books and Blankets was a great success this year with our theme: Blam! Zap! Pow!: We Love Graphic Novels!  Children of all ages and their families camIMG_2120e out to celebrate with us and check out some of the new comics the PTA helped us to buy.  Thanks again to the Garfield PTA for being amazing!

 

TIME TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT RETURNING BOOKS

The end of the school year is swiftly approaching with just about six weeks left to go!  With that in mind, please make sure you are returning any books you are no longer using/reading.  If you need to know what you have checked out, please come to the library and ask for a receipt.
