Reading, technology and fun are our highest priority at the Brewster and Korn Library Media Centers. Please, stop in for a visit or spend some time volunteering.
Book fair time! Kicking off a great summer of reading!
Our Scholastic book fairs to kick off summer reading will be happening May 29-31 at Brewster School, including throughout the day of the Dance Festival and June 4-7 at Korn School, including in the evening during the BKPTA's Ice Cream Social on June 5. These 3 day book fairs will put great books into the hands of students as they get ready to read throughout the summer. Mrs. Lussier will be needing volunteers to help at both schools. Please think about volunteering for an hour or 2. Sign-ups will be posted soon or feel free to email me at email@example.com - Thank you!

Guess who came to Korn? Author Sarah Albee!
Young Author's Day was celebrated on April 24 at Korn School and we invited someone very special to visit with us: author Sarah Albee. She is a local Connecticut author who has written a variety of books, including animal books and a favorite, Poop Happened! We loved learning about her books and writing process! For more information, visit her website - click here.
We have had a blast celebrating books in the first half of this year! Here's what is coming soon:
Poem in Your Pocket Day - we are finishing up our final skypes on Friday, April 26. See my blog post for more information and a link to a video. Coming shortly!
Brewster and Korn will both have bookfairs to kick off summer reading in late May/early June. I will be looking for volunteers to help out with browsing and buying during the 3 days of the fair.
Check your calendars! Details coming soon.
Be on the lookout for some great activities and fun!
Poetry Rocks! And so do Idioms!
For most of the year we have been reading poetry at the beginning of library, but at Korn we are exploring IDIOMS. It is a lot of fun to read and wonder about expressions that we don't hear as often as we used to. Some of the ones we have looked at so far are: It's raining cats and dogs; money doesn't grow on trees; Time flies when you are having fun.
Reading Counts is ongoing at Brewster and Korn. Please let the library or your child's classroom teacher know if you are interested in volunteering.
