February 18 was a special day at the Elementary School Library for our youngest patrons from Timbertops. Parents and children received a special invitation to visit the ES Library and explore the 27,000 volume collection together. It was a great success as over 30 children with their parents searched for books in English or from the extensive Mother Tongue book collection.
Making a surprise appearance was our own Lucky the Lion who many know from sporting events, but who is also an author in his own right with his book, Lucky the Lion Moves to Belgium. The children were delighted and Lucky was kept busy with taking photos, reading stories and of course, giving hugs.
The ES Library is open continuously Monday to Friday from 8:15 – 16:00 for exchanging books borrowed. If you weren’t able to attend the Open House, Ms. Rutland, ES Library Coordinator, encourages you to please come by with your little one to select some books for home reading. Remember, children learn to read on the laps of their parents!
