There are a lot of exciting library events this year. Coming in November is the annual Scholastic Book Fair. We appreciate your past support at the Book Fair which is held in the Library Media Center every fall; all profits will go towards more materials for our library. Book Fair books can be purchased on-line from November 5th – November 21st. Go to this website to begin shopping: www.scholastic.com/fair.

Also in December the library will be hosting a 100 Point Breakfast. Students in Kindergarten through second grade who 50 AR points or more will be invited to attend. Students in the third through fifth grade who earn 100 AR points or more will be invited to attend. Another 100 Point Breakfast will be held in May. So students who don’t earn the breakfast in December can continue to rack up points so that they can attend the May breakfast. As the dates approach for these two events we will provide more information.

We are happy to announce an author visit planned for April 2013. Cindy Blobaum, author of several non-fiction books for children, will present to the student body. Autographed copies of her books will be available for purchase in April.

Happy reading and learning in 2012-2013!
