SPECIAL EVENTS AND PROGRAMS
Gifts of Knowledge
There is a way to honor your teacher, or your birthday, or your friend or any other special person or occasion in your life. It's called Gift of Knowledge. You and your parent pick out a book from our Gift of Knowledge collection to purchase and then give back to the library. We put a special bookplate inside the front cover with a message from you. You may decide to honor your classroom teacher for the holidays, or at the end of the school year. Or, your parents may want to honor your birthday or bar or bat mitzvah with a new book for the library. No matter what the occasion, you get to be the first one to sign out the book.
Parents and others in the community are needed to help out in the library on a regular basis. Volunteer jobs include checking in and out books, reshelving books, helping students with searches, book covering and other tasks as needed. If you have an extra hour or two to help out in the library let one of the staff know.
Read Across America
If you, like millions of children and adults all around the world, love Dr. Seuss, you will look forward to the annual celebration of Dr. Seuss's (a.k.a. Theodor Geisel) birthday in early March. In the library, we have our own "Seuss-a-thon" all week, reading as many of his books as we can. We make posters and write essays with our own personal thoughts and memories about the great man and his work.
Each year we invite an author or illustrator to visit our school and talk to us about their books. We've hosted Grace Lin, Barbara McGrath,Andrew Clements (Frindle, School Story, The Jacket,) Ashley Bryan (Ashley Bryan's ABC of African American Poetry, Turtle Knows Your Name, The Book of African Proverbs,) Douglas Florian (Laugheteria, Summersault, Mammalia) and most recently Nancy Poydar spent a day with us sharing her books and paintings.
