Check It Out! Week of October 24th!


Twas the Week Before Halloween…

When we came into the library this week, we found out that a bunch of bats had invaded our library tree! That must mean Halloween is almost here!

The lucky Thursday library classes participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record Day on Thursday, October 27th. We joined libraries and classrooms around the world in reading the book The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach. We are hoping the break the world record for the most people reading the same book in 24 hours. Fingers crossed!


We also met for the first 4th and 5th grade Booked for Recess book club! This month’s selection was The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall. We had an interesting discussion about which character we felt we were the most like and speculated for a long time about what we hope might happen in future books. Next month’s selection is The Apothecary by Maile Meloy. I will be sending home the registration forms next week, and they will be posted on the library site as well.

 The October Booked for Recess Club!
This week the Secondary Library was honored to welcome author Peter Kujawinski to speak about his book Nightfall and to talk about the writing process and his years as an American diplomat. He kept the packed house of sixth, seventh and eighth graders spellbound with a reading from his book, which is a spooky survival story, perfect for Halloween reading! Thank you to The Book Cellar for sponsoring the event!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Mrs. Wiederkehr
