Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful, book-filled summer. I can't wait to see your smiling faces, and get a book in your hands this school year. 

Families: when does your student come to the library? How often do they have library class? When are their books due, and what happens if a book goes missing? Check out the Library Policies on the left hand navigation to answer these questions, and as always, feel free to email Ms. Maneck at [email protected]

Cheers to a great school year!
