Today is Brendan's 7th birthday! He is celebrating by donating Otis and the Scarecrow to the Hamilton Library. We can't wait to read this beautiful book!
We've got a batch of Birthday Books on the counter, being processed and getting ready to go out to students. I'm so excited to celebrate birthdays with great books!
On December 10th, 2016, Tristan turned 6! He celebrated by donating The Thank You Book to the Hamilton Library! And that's not the only new Gerald & Piggie book to join our collection. Molly turned 5 1/2 and donated Waiting is not Easy! in anticipation of her 6th birthday which is on July 12th! Waiting for your birthday sure isn't easy, but these books will help us pass the time. Thank you!
Molly's brother Noah also celebrated his half-birthday this year by donating Caldecott winner, The Adventures of Beekle to the library. Then, Austin celebrated on January 9th, by donating Wild Robot!
In February, we have another big batch of birthdays. Starting off with Samridhi who donated Junie B. Jones: Toothless Wonder. Then Ryan brought us Pete the Cat's Train Trip. Ava celebrated her 11th brithday by donating Blackbird Fly, and Keira doubled our HiLo collection on her 8th birthday by donating HiLo volume 1 and 2! We are so fortunate to have such generous students who choose to celebrate their birthday by donating books to the library. I can't wait to read each and every one.
Today we wish Anthyony a very happy birthday as we enjoy his birthday book: Firelight (Amulet Book #7). The Amulet series is one of the most requested, with many students waiting weeks on hold for these books. I think part of the reason why they are so popular is that students like to read them over and over again. Anthony admitted that he had read this book 4 times! Suspenseful, beautiful, and enchanting - if you are a fan of graphic novels, what are you waiting for? Get in line for the Amulet series today!
