Exciting News!

I'm excited to announce two very exciting visitors will be visiting Mitchell this spring!

 

On Friday, February 9, local author and illustrator Jason Witter will be visiting Mitchell to talk about storytelling through illustrations and poetry. Mr. Witter was inspired by Shel Silverstein, whose poetry is a favorite for many students.  His book, The Tiniest Vampire, will be available for purchase.

 

On Monday, March 5, Mr. Schu, AKA John Shumacher, is coming!  Mr. Schu is an expert on kid lit- he knows everything about the books YOU want to read, and he's coming to share that with US!!! He will be visiting with all students throughout the day.  I can't wait to meet him and hear about his favorite books. I know I've got lots of questions for him, such as:

Questions for Mr. Schu

What questions do you have for Mr. Schu?

Mitch the Mustang Loves to Learn!

Students can check Mitch out at the Library, just like a book, and take him on your adventures! This summer Mitch learned how to bowl and went international on a trip to Ireland!

 

Where will he go this year? You get to decide! Take pictures and post them to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #librarymascotsrule or email them to Mrs. B. and you might see them on our website!

Free Books for GREAT Library Patrons!

Every student at Mitchell has the opportunity to earn a free book! Each week a student returns his/her library books a hold punch is put into that student's library card.  After 12 hole punches students have the opportunity to select a brand new book that they will get to keep!  This is our way of recognizing students who are learning to reliable and responsible about caring for and returning library books.  

 

Please encourage your kids to keep their books in their backpacks.  It makes it much easier for them to return books, and it keeps the books safe from younger siblings, pets, weather, dirt, food, and other things that might damage them.

 

Congratulations to the many GREAT students we have in the library each week!
