A Week to Celebrate Books

“I find television to be very educating.Every time somebody turns on the TV, I go into the other room and read a book.” ~ Groucho Marx

“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.” ~ Jacqueline Kennedy
“The wise person reads both books and life itself.”~ Lin Yutang
This week and really throughout the year, we want to engage students in the pleasure of reading. We particularly pursue the love of books and it makes sense that our libraries lead the way. Whether it is bound print on paper or a Kindle or iPad, there is something wonderful about the power of a book to transport and transform. That’s what we hope our students will experience this week and all of their lives.
