In this brief, fact-filled video from the History Channel, you can learn how Thanksgiving became a national holiday and how the celebration changed over the years. Did you know that there was no turkey on the menu at the first celebration? Enjoy watching and Happy Thanksgiving!
Here’s your chance to create an original work of art based on a book you have read.
Imagine that you have been chosen to design a book cover and could use any art medium at all (paint, crayons, markers, collage materials, etc).
All students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade may participate and can pick up a piece of poster board in the library. Instructions are here: Book cover contest flyer 2015
All entries must be returned no later than Monday morning, October 19th in order to be viewed by our panel of judges. Winners will receive gift certificates to spend at the East Woods Fall Book Fair, coming to our Library beginning on Parent-Teacher Conference Day.
Have fun being creative!
