Let's all enjoy some books, reading, silence, library time, book stores, and nap time over this holiday time. We can all be grateful for the time to rest, reflect, and to read a great story!

Ten picture books have been nominated for the "Star of the North Book Award."
New this year, the Star of the North Book award promotes engaging picture books and reading pleasure among school age children. We can all enjoy these beautiful and creative books!  I'm sharing them with students now and each title is available in the Hi-C Library. Watch for them to come home to your house.

Notes from the Library

"Your Library a place for Wonder"

Please explore the Saint Paul Public Library website with your children. We are highlighting many of the great resources available to our students beyond our little school library..... teach your children how to request a book or how to see what events are happening at our public library too! We all want to be life longer library users, I always say.

Students celebrated International DOT DAY 2013 in the library this week! DOT DAY is an international celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration. We watched a dvd of "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds and then students created Dots!

It's all about fun and the potential of creativity!

Welcome to the Library

Hope your summer was relaxing and filled with some great reading! I am embracing my new ipad and look forward to sharing and learning even more about it with my library class students this year.

I made a trip to a beautiful Montana Ranch this summer too, so I have some great new horsey stuff to share with my horse pals!

Enjoy this first week of our new school year.
