It's Book Fair Time!

That's right--it's Scholastic Book Fair time again! Students and families can browse and shop the fair from Thurs. Mar. 2 - Thurs. Mar. 9, both during the school day and during parent teacher conferences. 

Take a look at the preview video below:

You can also shop our book fair online, where many more titles are available, including titles for younger and/or older siblings. You can access our online fair here.

We'll be running a guessing contest during the fair. Students can guess the number of bears in the container, and the student who comes closest to the exact number will win a $10 gift certificate to use at the book fair. Stop by to enter!

New (Interactive) Library Display

We're so excited in the library about our newest display! A recent Twitter post with the hashtag "ReadIt" showed a student holding a book in front of a Twitter-inspired space, and an idea took hold. A quick Instagram search showed more than 186,000 posts with the "#ReadIt" tag. How could we not add our own #ReadIt pictures?!

To kick off the display, Mrs. Howard and I each showed off what we'd read (and loved!), and now we're ready for you to join us. Stop by the library, grab one of your favorite books, and get ready to be part of our #ReadIt display! We'll add posts to Instagram--be sure to follow us at @DCGLibraries!
