The library has been buzzing with research projects, book browsing, artwork and new discoveries of all kinds! On November 7 we were honored to host acclaimed author Hena Khan, who spoke with M1s about her life as a Muslim American writer and Amina's Voice, a novel about friendship, tolerance and the strength to be yourself. A book signing and festive lunch with M1/M2 Book Club members and a group of M1s followed.
For an overview of Fall 2017 book clubs, learning experiences and activities, please view this slideshow, which has also been shared with your children, faculty, and staff.
Speaking of books...
In response to your requests, the MS Library Parent Resource Folder has been revived and updated with curated book recommendations, "Best of 2017" lists, tips and arguments for reading as a family, and links to book-related events around New York. Meanwhile, we are now loaning library books which are not due until after break in (gasp!) January 2018.
Love Your Libraries!
It's never too late for an NYPL Library card. This passport to a network of learning and a wealth of books, databases, DVDs, music, audiobooks and other resources, connects you with the life of New York City and the world beyond. It's also a great traveling companion for the coming Winter Break!
If you have any questions or ideas, please stop by or reach out to me firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for all of your suggestions and support this fall -- and keep reading!
