    You don’t need to complete a super long book review…just a general suggestion (title, author, theme, length, description of favourite characters or setting) on an index card. Why do you love it? Why should we try it? That sort of thing. It’s wide open and a work in progress! See Mrs. Killeen for more info!
  • Student Essay Contest: Imagine you have the power to fix the biggest problem in the world. In two pages or less, describe the problem and what you would do about it. Enter for a chance to win a trip to Toronto to see a special advance screening of the movie, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay”. Contest ends next Friday, October 24, 2014. Visit the Library and ask Mrs. Killeen for more information about this writing contest.
