Welcome, June!

Wow, it’s June. The summer is SO close, and we’ve been busy in the library with projects! MCAS testing just finished, so the library is open again full-time. We FINALLY finished our Stick Together project, and Maker Club has started working on miniature houses made using materials found in nature (and in the library). Enjoy the pictures below of our last few weeks!

In just one hour, this tree house looks AMAZING! Also, I can’t believe it’s standing!

It’s that time of year…all library books are due FRIDAY!

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a fantastic April vacation! Just about 2 more months until summer vacation (but who’s counting?). The library may seem different today, because…WE FINALLY GOT NEW CHAIRS (also some new books)!!

The LMC has had the same wooden chairs for about 20+ years, so I have been told. It was beyond time to get some newer furniture in here. With thanks to Falmouth Community School, we now have 60 new chairs! They are much safer, more comfortable and won’t break when students lean back in them, and easily stack for any maneuvering they might need when community organizations meet in here.

We now have chairs at every table! 

This week MCAS testing will begin, and the library may have some strange hours. Nothing is set in stone yet, but keep your eyes, and ears open, for any news!

Speed Dating! …with a book

The 7th graders might be a little young to start speed dating, but when you’re speed dating with a book, no one is too young! Mrs. Hennessy’s class read a book of their choice, created a dating profile for their book, and then went on many “dates” to try and find “the one”. Many students had amazing dates, and left school with a new date in hand (and by date, I mean BOOK). The library was lucky enough to be given some of the book posters to hang up….come check them out, and see if you can find your perfect match. ❤
