What She Said
Another Great Idea!
"Librarians are very special people. They are the caregivers of the world of the mind, the nurturers of dreams and the defenders of truth. Perhaps no other profession is so marked by the singular generosity of its practitioners." -- Denver Post editorial, March 25, 2000.
“The richest person in the world, in fact, all the riches in the world couldn't provide you with anything like the endless, incredible loot available at your local library.” -- Malcolm Forbes
What She Said
“Your show was very refreshing. Everyone loved the rat and hippo (The rat and hippo are puppets). The teachers and I appreciated the warm, encouraging atmosphere that you conveyed to the children about reading and the library. We hope to see you soon.” -- Mary Underwood, Leighton ES
That’s a Great Idea!
“We recognize the students and teachers who have public library cards. We take pictures of each one holding their card and make a display in the hallway. We invite speakers from the public library to come and talk to the students about what they offer. This can increase the number of books in the home and encourage reading.” -- Jane Hardy, Lane Elementary
See you next week!
