It is with much gratitude that I create this blog post. We broke records at last week’s book fair. We had over $11,000 in sales with half of that coming to the library. I am so thankful to be part of such a strong reading community. With some of the funds raised we will be able to continue to provide our students with two exceptional online student databases: ScienceFlix and Scholastic Go!, which support their research needs. In addition, we will be able to secure more new books for our newly expanded library space.
We were so excited to welcome Mrs. Joseph from the Wilmette Public Library, who was here for our popsicle party. She signed up 90 students for the library’s summer reading program. Don’t worry if you didn’t get a chance to sign-up your child, just head over to the public library to register for summer reading.
Much thanks to Book Fair chairs Lina Nicklin and Amy Wolff, as well as the numerous parent volunteers, who made the book fair so inviting and welcoming.
Happy Summer Reading!
