This is what Longview students had to say:
*to make me read more and love reading
*the library inspires me to read a book and relax and learn because it is so welcoming and gives me a good attitude
*the science books inspire my ideas
*to read lots like a voracious reader
*getting a good fit book, so it will be easier for me to read the book
*it inspires me to work harder and read more
*the LC inspires me to read new books and try them
*the learning commons inspires me to read interesting books, expand my vocabulary, to write stories by giving me new ideas to write about
October is National Library Month. Stop by and pick up a new book or an old favorite to curl up with as the autumn leaves gather on the ground.

Watched this little video interview when it popped up on my twitter feed….got me thinking….what am I doing to help our Learning Commons serve my community.
The challenge of I Spy is one that many children seem to love. The showcase in the Learning Commons has been transformed into a 3D I Spy. Come in and see what you can find.
