A HUGE THANK YOU to Ron and Patricia Smiley for creating, painting and installing our new Lil Maroon Library with Jim Phipps' help! This enables all our students to drive by and take home a free book, whenever, as well as the community! Thank you Mrs. Detria Thomas for making a large book donation so we stocked it full!

2019 HOLIDAY HOOPLA! 10 stations of makerspaces, snacks, Santa, writing and stories! Great family night!

MAKERSPACE...heard that word? Creativity is back in action in many classrooms and in the library! Grants have provided many resources. Ask your students what they have made lately!

Local Author, Reggie Grubb, shared one of his new books Where the Wind Blows with Pre-K - 1st graders last year!

THIS YEAR, SPILLER AND WYTHE COUNTY HAS MADE AN EFFORT TO HELP OUR STUDENTS ENTER THE CODING WORLD! Computer programming is one of the highest demanded careers. This opens students to many job choices, especially girls! Free coding programs are available on code.org, scratch and scratch Jr. Ask your kids to show you how they do it!

Reading Challenge

Set a personal challenge for yourself this year. Can you read 20 books? 30? 50? Or more?

Parents read to and with your children of any age. Let them see you reading. They LEARN from you!

2nd graders are invited to participate in the Magic Tree House Challenge-beginning in September 2020! Students who read one book from each of the 7 continents, and take a Read n Quiz, earn a special prize! All second graders are welcome to participate.

Want to know if a book is an on the READ 'N QUIZ lists? You can find out by going to www.readnquiz.com. You will need to enter the complete title of the book or the author's name and click Find a Book. This is a new, less expensive program than AR but has similar attributes. And please remember that not all good books are RQ books and that is OKAY! Read for enjoyment!

COME SEE OUR MAGIC TREE HOUSE built by WCTC's Building & Trade department. Our kids are super excited to have a cool place to read!

Who is your favorite author?

Have you read all of their books yet? Can you find others that are similar to the genre you enjoy? Ask your librarian or a teacher to help you with other titles.

NEW BOOKS ARRIVE FREQUENTLY...you can request books as well!
