Happy Thanksgiving! I'm looking forward to curling up with my daughter, my cat and a few good books over the long weekend! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.

Welcome to the new library blog!

Welcome! I am hoping that the new library blog will be a convenient way for me to communicate with students and parents. I am planning to update it regularly with a mix of interesting links, book recommendations, announcements about local events, and more.

Please feel free to send me comments, questions and requests! I want to hear from all of you.

Happy reading!
Ms. Simeon
