Thanks to everyone for making National Library Week at WJMS a huge success. Many of our faculty and students came by to ask about our READ posters that have been placed around the school and are on the PowerPoint news program. I enjoyed creating the scenes and making the posters very much. I had many students who came by to ask me to create a READ poster of them. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to get many student posters done. Maybe next year I can have a better plan. Huge thanks to all of the volunteers who were willing to pose in some creative ways. 😮
Wednesday, Melissa LeGette came by to talk to classes about her book The Unicorn Girl. I was very proud of our students. They were well behaved and asked some great questions. Chloe W. won an autographed copy of The Unicorn Girl with her question, “Where do you get the inspiration and the ideas for your book?”. Check out my post on her visit.
The Statesboro Herald ran a contest called “How much do you know about your library?”. The April 17th paper had a series of 17 questions of which the answers were one of the libraries in Bulloch County schools. There will be prizes given and the contest ends April 24th. Contest
