March Madness!

I’m a librarian that likes sports! As a result, I’ve combined books and sports on our latest incarnation of the bulletin board and displays in the media center. Poor Mrs. Golemme wishes I’d stop talking about it! Stop by to see the “book bracket” and vote on winners. I think I’m rooting for Hunger Games to win it all. What do you think? Come see if your favorite book made the sweet sixteen.

Also, if you’re into basketball, check the displays near the big window and comfy seats for a good book or two.

Dr. Seuss Birthday Success!

The snow did not deter us from celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday in style! We put on our hats and trekked to Walnut Grove Elementary and read to the students there. A great time was had by everyone! The Walnut Grove faculty and staff were very kind to us, and a big thank you goes to media specialist Amy Bross and media clerk Patti Heaton for their coordination effort and warm welcome.

We read books and led students in a Reader’s Oath and gave out stickers and bookmarks. Happy students (both big and little) asked if we could do it again next year. I think it’s definitely in order! Now I wonder if it will snow on us again…¬† ūüėČ

Poetry Reading!

dscf0843Mrs. Dean’s students braved their nerves and participated in a poetry reading in the media center yesterday afternoon. It was quite a success! Students read their poetry to an audience of about 100 students, teachers, and parents. At times the poetry was poignant, other times funny, and sometimes it was both. What an amazing event to be a part of! Congrats go out to Mrs. Dean’s kids for not only writing personal poetry, but for having the courage to share it out loud.
