Greta and the Giants

by Zoe Tucker

Our final 'Earth Day' story is inspired by climate activist extraordinaire Greta Thunberg.

When giants come to the forest, and threaten to cut it down to build cities Great takes a stand with the animals. Alone at first, soon others hear her voice and together they help the giants understand that the forest is a home, too, and together they look for ways to replenish and repair.

A safe library

We are working hard to make sure our library is a safe space during COVID. Students are currently not permitted in the library, and books are quarantined after single student use.

Please read on for more information.

  • Once books are returned to the library, they are quarantined (boxed up) for at least 3 days. Only AFTER that 3-day quarantine period are they shelved or put in children's hands.

  • Shelves are accessed only by the librarian.

  • Students are not currently permitted in the library

  • Physical distancing within the room: reduced number of chairs, directional movement guided by arrows

  • Mail carrier model for individual book requests via Google form (access via 'request a book' button below).
