A chilly wind is blowing, my cats are snuggled up together, and the Chiefs are playing–must be fall!! This month the library is a really busy spot with research–Mrs. Butler’s 7th grade social studies classes start the month with geography projects, 6th grade social studies will be researching Egypt in the middle of the month, and Mr. Fine’s 7th grade social studies will be finishing the month! We’ve also been ordering some new books to get ready for those days when it’s too chilly to be outside, or for those holiday travels when you are in the car for extended periods of time–what a great time to get lost in a good book. (Well, unless you’re driving!) The annual PRT holiday book fair is a little over a month away–watch this spot for more information, including a new feature–online shopping! And it all benefits the PRT library. Happy Reading!
We’ve had some fun in Library Advisory Council making posters to hang up for Teen Read Week. Teen Read Week officially begins October 17, but due to conferences (making a short week) and the weekend start date, PRT extends the celebration for a few extra days in October. The theme this year is Books with Beat–find some books to get your heart beating–Halloween is a great season for that. Or, try books on music to add some rhythm to your life! To see more of our posters, go to the Library Advisory Council web page link.
Scrapbooking club, sponsored by Mrs. Culver and Mrs. Jaeger, met in the library last week. We had over 40 young ladies making a spooky page layout for Halloween. It was so fun to see them individualize their pages–what creativity. We meet again on November 4.
Parent Teacher conferences make for a short week, so make sure you are stocked up on great books to read for the long weekend!!
