All Hallows Read!

Have you heard of All Hallow's Read?  If not, you are in for a real treat (not trick...promise).

Here, Neil Gaiman can explain it much better than I...

So read a book, give a book!  Here in the library I am giving away books!  For you to keep!  Stop by and a copy of Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven will be yours forever.

And if you're wanting to read a scary book this Halloween, come by the library and check out the New Book shelf, it's been stocked with all sorts of tales of terror.  I've got your ghosts, your vampires, your walking dead and for those really brave check out The Monstrumologist.  It's not for the faint of heart and only a few make it all the way through.  Check it out if you dare.  *muhahahahahaha*

Mrs. Julsonnet's Library Club of Superb Awesomeness

Do you wonder what sorts of things we get up to in the library club?  Well, we just finished our first project and next month we'll be traveling to New York City to participate in the first ever 90-Second Newbery Film Festival.

The club members have been working diligently, putting in hours after school and during lunch to create their film for the festival.  Interestingly, the Newbery winning book they chose was The Giver by Lois Lowry (This  is not to be confused with the play being produced by LCDS students which runs next week).

With the help of the 3rd grade students and the generous loaning of several props by Mrs. Kraft's Preschool class, Mrs. Julsonnet's Library Club of Superb Awesomeness proudly present their entry for the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival.

A fox coming to a box near you!

Who doesn't like Johnny Depp?  How about Johnny Depp as the infamous Dr. Seuss?  Word is, Johnny Depp is not only going to produce a film about the great Theodor Geisel, he might also be cast in the starring role.

Hmmm...I can see it.  The Hollywood Reporter article here.
