LIBRARY NEWS

Library is CLOSED Until Further Notice

ALL library books and book bags were called back before the temporary school closure. However, if you were not able to return your books and/or bag, please hold onto them, READ, and take good care of them until further notice. 

As we adjust to our shelter in place and distance learning, I hope you are able to find comfort in a good book. Continue to explore, wonder, imagine, and express your thoughts, feelings, and ideas about books with your family. Create your own book or personal journal. Remember - your voice, your story matters. 

Take good care ~ Mrs. Garcia
