September 2018 Library News

Another school year has started, and the library is back in business!  The welcome back bulletin board outside the library reads “The Books Missed You!”  When I check on the mail over the summer, it always feels a little strange without the students in the library, so it is a good feeling to see everyone back. It has been enjoyable to talk to your children about the books they read, the job experiences they had, all of the family vacations they went on this summer.

This September finds us reading and learning about the origin of Labor Day, which is September 4th this year.  We will also be reading about the origin of Patriot Day (9/11), and we will also be reading about Apples, the Autumnal Equinox (occurring on September 22nd), and ending with the changing of the seasons from summer to autumn.

Book Club will be starting back up on September 13th with our first book of the school year.  We will be reading and discussing The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill. This title won the 2017 John Newbery Award for Most Distinguished Contribution to American Literature for Children. A young girl raised by a kind witch, a swamp monster, and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, must unlock the powerful magic buried deep inside of her.  We cannot wait to get started on it!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at jbrown@osdb.oh.gov, or call me at 614-468-8857. 

Happy September!
