The Morse Pond School has posted their Summer Reading List 2008 for 5th and 6th graders. There is a Summer Reading Assignment form on their web page and in our Children’s Room that you need to fill in based on two different Battle of the Books titles. Fill out your form and you can redeem it for a prize by returning it to the Morse Pond Library during the first week of school! We’ve got lots of copies of these books in the Children’s Room, and they all have yellow stickers on their spines with a J on it. And if you’d like to read some more Chris Van Allsburg books, we have those too!
As of today there will be a hole in the children’s department. The head of Children’s Services, Jennifer Sirrico has decided to leave her position at the Falmouth Public Library in order to pursue a career in writing. We are sure many of you will miss her presence, but we trust we will find some terrific Children’s Librarian to take her position as soon as possible. Summer is, of course, a wildly exciting time and the theme this year for summer reading is ”Wild Reads”. We know that Jennifer set up a wonderful Summer of programs before she left us, so we hope everyone will come in and enjoy our fabulous new children’s room and some great summer reading programs. We are delighted to announce that Donna Skinner will be our interim Children’s Librarian until we are able to fill the position.
