Better Late than Never
On Monday, November 20, we sponsored the first reading party at Fairhaven High School. Part of our core mission here in the library is to build a community of readers. This doesn't just start in grade nine. This is something that must be cultivated, which we can do by creating a fun environment around reading. Both the writing and book clubs helped run an afternoon party for kids from ages 4-7. We read Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Pig a Party.
Kids read the book, made pig puppets and bookmarks, colored, wrote stories, and enjoyed a bunch of treats. It was a great time had by all who attended, including our high school kids.
