Inspired by Emily and Francisco, Ms. Rolfe's goal is to finish the Gregor Overlander series by Suzanne Collins (maybe you recognize that name as the author of The Hunger Games!).

Thanks to all for supporting the book fair.  We raised enough money to purchase 134 books for classrooms, students and the library!

What are you doing this summer?  Ms. Rolfe is reading, working on her deck and visiting family - sometimes two at once.

My favorite series this summer.
My next book I read is going to be Emily Windsnap by Liz Kessler

 Know any great librarians?  Think big - it could be a school librarian, a public librarian or a college librarian.  Sept.6 is the deadline for the I Love My Librarian Award (hey, maybe it should be I Love My Library Award!)

We are watching the Iditarod race and tracking the results on the wall outside the library.
Check out what's happening on the website, or check out one of our favorite books about dog sledding

Congratulations to our Battle of the Books Team!
DaKatz II went to the regional competition.  There were 59 schools there.  Even though DaKatz II won both their battles, they  needed 80 points to go to the next level.
Great job Cody, Elias, James, Jordan and Thea!
