Library Book Bus

Who's ready for a new adventure?  Just because we're learning at home doesn't mean we can't visit strange new worlds and go on a marvelous new journey!


Mrs. Sterling would love to put new books into the hands of our young readers.  Heard about a new book you'd love to read?  Have a favorite you'd like to read again?  Love a book and want to enjoy more like it?  Just let her know and she'll do her best to fulfill your literary wish!  Fill out the book request form to share your wish list.  


The book bus visits 4 stops weekly.  You can chose the one closest to you or you can pick up in the drive through at the school.  Can't make it during the day?  There's an evening pickup at school for families who need a later time.
