It's National Library Week!
We'll be celebrating all things library related this week!
Did you know National Library Week started way back in 1958? The very first slogan was, "Wake Up and Read." National Library Week is typically held during the month of April. Public libraries do a lot more celebrating than school libraries. For us, NLW usually falls during spring break or Milestones testing, where we want to keep things low key.
Libraries often pass out bookmarks when a patron (library speak for customer) visits the library. Why? Bookmarks serve a very important purpose for readers. They remind the reader where to resume reading in a book. Several students at Riverside like to collect the bookmarks we pass out during library visits. Who knows, maybe one of our bookmarks will be as valuable as this STAR WARS bookmark from 1983.
Anyhow, today's MAKER MONDAY activity will be to create your own bookmarks! Grab your crafting supplies and imagination:
