National Library Week brings attention to building a strong community

This week the school library is celebrating National Library Week with the theme of building a strong community. There are many activities for kids to participate in including a class puzzle challenge, book-in-a-jar, match the “shelfie to the selfie”, daily trivia over the intercom and hidden Jeffs in the Media Center. The grade who completes their puzzle first will win breakfast pizza. There will be two Rokus rewarded to the students who win the book-in-a-jar and match the “shelfie to the selfie” competitions. All students are encouraged to stop into the media center Wednesday for a special treat.

“The “official” purpose of National Library Week is a celebration to bring to light how valuable our libraries, librarians and library workers are to our communities and also our lives,” Media Tech Mrs. Carly Winter said. “It is a time to highlight some of the uses and opportunities available through library/media centers across the country.”

Winter said the purpose for National Library Week at FHS is to encourage students to visit the library. She hopes that providing activities and treats for students will create a positive library experience.
