New Year's Resolutions 2020

Our third graders took some time this week to think about some things that they'd like to change about themselves this year.  Click on the link below to take a look and listen to their videos about their new year's resolutions for 2020.


Library Musical Chairs

Many of us are creatures of habit and often gravitate to the same books, movies, and tv shows that we've read and seen many times before.  Kids are no different.  How many times can kids read The Book With No Pictures or the same super hero book from last week or the same series that they've checked out a million times before?  You'd be surprised! :)  We changed things up a bit this week and explored many different types of books that are part of our library collection.  How did we do that? We played library musical chairs, of course!

Ice Skating in the Library

In San Antonio, our weather doesn't really allow us much opportunity to participate in outdoor winter activities. That doesn't stop us, though. We improvise! After reading a book or two about activities in the snow, our Preschool and Pre-K kids got to "ice skate" in the library. We had a blast, and some of the kids even had some fancy moves. :) Enjoy!

Dragons in the Library

This week we are reading a book called Do Not Bring Your Dragon to the Library written by Julie Gassman and illustrated by Andy Elkerton. We even had a dragon visit our library! ;)

Book Character Pumpkins

For the first time ever, our families were invited to paint and decorate a pumpkin to look like a book character.  This was a voluntary project, and we had a great turnout of some very creative pumpkins.  Thank you to everyone who submitted a pumpkin to display in the library!  We may have to make this an annual tradition.

Scary Stories, anyone?!

The younger kids might get some thrills out of books like Creepy Carrots and Creepy Pair of Underwear, but our big kids get to really have some fun with scary stories around Halloween time.  The third, fourth, and fifth graders get to take part in an annual tradition of going into the library closet and sitting in the dark to read scary stories.  They love it and look forward to it every year!  Here is a picture of our fourth graders getting ready to read some of the short stories that could cause goosebumps to break out on their skin and the hair on the back of their necks to stand up.  Spooky!
