Roll Out the Red Carpet!
Book Buzz, our book club for 2nd and 3rd graders, met last Monday night to share award-winning books for children. Afterwards, we created ribbons for inventive book awards of our own ("Best Book About Rodents"???). For more photos, follow this link.
Our next meeting is Monday night, February 11, when we'll share "One-Word Wonders"--books with one-word titles. Check out our bookmarks at the Book Buzz display or ask a librarian for suggestions. Remember to register online or call 444-7830.
