BLUESTEM AND CAUDILL CHALLENGE KICKOFF

Friday morning, October 3rd,  may have been dark and rainy, but that didn't stop nearly sixty Edison 3rd, 4th and 5th graders from arriving at school early with the hopes of being one of the first Edison students to check out a 2015 Bluestem or Caudill title. Thanks to all the parents and other drivers who were willing to change their morning routine to deliver students to the Edison Library early!  Thanks to all the students for starting off the Bluestem and Caudill challenges with a great turnout!

 What a school thinks about its library is a measure of what it feels about education.

CELEBRATION BOOKS!

     Celebrating a birthday, holiday, special person or occasion in your family or in your child’s life?   Choose a CELEBRATION BOOK! to celebrate a birthday (instead of a sugary treat!) Maybe you will choose a CELEBRATION BOOK! to donate to the Edison LMC in honor of a special child, family member, teacher or to commemorate holiday or event.  We appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity.

    If you are looking for book ideas, we have put together a list of books that we know students at Edison School would love to read.  You can always check with Mrs. Greska about a particular book to see if the Edison LMC already has the book.  We do prefer hardcover books as they are much more durable than paperback ones when circulating to numerous readers.

    After the donation of a book:

  • a permanent CELEBRATION BOOK!  bookplate will be placed on the inside of the book with the donor’s name, date and the event or person being celebrated; 
  • the honored student can be the first person to check out the book from the Edison LMC. 

   Upon return from the first check-out, the CELEBRATION BOOK! will take its place on the shelves of the Edison LMC for everyone to enjoy for years to come. 

    Please click here for book ideas, and thanks for thinking of the Edison LMC!
