Summer = Reading!

Summertime means lots of time for reading!  I hope that you all enjoy some amazing books and that you read each and every day.  I also hope that many of you take advantage of all the great events going on at the Totman Library.  I can't wait to hear about all that you've read!

Here are some summer reading resources:

On to BMS...

5th graders, it has been such a pleasure reading and learning with you over the past six years!  Before you go, I want to give you a hint of what is to come at the BMS Library

Please use the BMS catalog to search for and find a book that you'd like to read when you are in 6th grade (remember, you can use "Destiny Quest" to see new books and/or books that lots of other students are reading). 

Once you've found a title you'd like to read, please post a comment here including the title and author of the book and why you'd like to read it.

We're going to use Wikimedia Commons to find our images for this project.
