We are on the final week of summer vacation. School for USD 417 starts next Thursday Aug 16th. Where has the summer gone. We have 18 new books here in the library in our collection, and a new exchange of Book Mobile books arrived yesterday.
Our check out challenge for August is Western books. Check out a Western Book from our book collection and be entered into a drawing for a prize. Last month Barbara won. The check out challenges are for kids going into 6th Grade through Adults.
And before those little ones go back to school, bring them into the library. 3 years ago when I became the Librarian I started a tradition of taking photos of the kids holding a chalk board. On the chalk board it has their name, age, grade, and what they want to be when they grow up. I display the photo’s on our back to school bulletin board, and my hope is to mail all the pictures to the kids when they graduate.
