  • Mark Your Calendars -- May 26!

    As we get closer to the end of the year, please pay special attention to the library overdue notices that are coming home on Fridays. All library obligations must be taken care of by yearend, so it's important to find those books and get them back to the library! All library books are due on Friday, May 26.

  • Night at the Museum Results are In!

    Thank you to the 4th and 5th grade volunteers and to all our families who supported The Night at the Museum.  You generosity raised $366 for Scholastic's All for Books, which provides books for children in impoverished neighborhoods.  In addition, Scholastic matches that amount for books for our library.  You should be so proud!

  • Thank you, PTA!

    The PTA generously allocated Scholastic dollars for the purchase of new library books.  Some were purchased from the Book Fair, and others will be coming from the Scholastic catalog.  Can't wait for you to see them!

    In addition, the PTA has paid to purchase book club books (Number the Stars and Pax) for the 4th and 5th grade activity period classes on Thursday.  We're loving them already!

  • Library Needs

    If you have tissues or boxes of new crayons you'd be willing to donate to the library, it would be most appreciated. We seems to use both very quickly! Thank you!

  • Volunteers Needed
    The library is a very busy place, and in need of several good volunteers.  If you like to help in the library, whether with classes, checking in and out, book repair, or shelving, just email Mrs. Bott and let her know.  We'd love to have you in our library!
