Tom Watson Rocks!

Our 2nd and 3rd graders were captivated by the humor and kindness of author/illustrator Tom Watson.  The pictures say it all!  Thank you, Tom and Powell's Books,  for sharing Stick Dog, Karen, Poo-Poo, Mutt and Stripes with us!

Thank You Summer Readers!

Our grand tally for participants in our Summer Reading Program was 100 readers!  T-shirts will be arriving within the next week or so and will be distributed during library classes.

2nd graders enjoyed checking out books and investigating the Stickdog website on this rainy morning.  We will welcome author Tom Watson tomorrow thanks to Powell's!

Fall Author Visits!

Lucky us!  We will be welcoming at least three authors and illustrators this fall to our Lower School Library.  Thanks to Powell's, Tom Watson and Stick-Dog will visit with our 2nd and 3rd graders on Friday, September 19th.  With support from FOESL (Friends of the OES School Libraries), the author of "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library", Chris Grabenstein, will meet with our 3-5 grade students.  Each 4th and 5th grader has received his or her own copy of the book and are reading it in preparation for his visit.  There is also a very unique event coming in November via Powell's. Details are being ironed out, but let's just say that animal lovers and fans of the "Unlikely Friendship" books will be in for a real treat.

Welcome Back!

We can't wait to see proof of all the reading our Lower School community did over the summer! Bring your summer reading forms by the Lower School Library anytime before Friday, September 12th.  Summer Reading T-shirts will be distributed during library classes by the last week in September.  If you lost your form or need an extra, we have copies in the library or you can access an on-line version here.
