News from the Upstairs Library

The library staff has been busy preparing for the upcoming author visit.  This year, Newbery Award-winning author Kirby Larson will be speaking with our students onTuesday, April 12.  Ms. Larson is the author of Duke, Dash, Hattie Big Sky, Audacity Jones, and Nubs, to name just a few.  School librarian Ms. Jensen has visited English/language arts classrooms to speak about Ms. Larson, and Mrs. Cufr, our elementary media associate, has been reading aloud from several of Ms. Larson's books in anticipation of Kirby Larson's visit.  We hope all students will become acquainted with her BEFORE she arrives so that they can learn as much as possible from her when she is here.

 

Other exciting news is that a very generous woman from Traer has donated her collection of books about the Amish.  Most of them are novels, but there are also a few non-fiction books that contain historical and cultural information.  It will take time to get all of them on the shelves, but several are already available now for check-out. We want to remind the North Tama staff that they also have library privileges, so please come up and see these new books!
