Students as book cover designers! The entries in this year’s contest showcased the creative talents of our students. More photos coming soon!
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 2014
All entries must be returned no later than Monday morning, October 20th 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!
Readability is a tool that makes reading online much easier. Very often, web pages are cluttered with lots of sidebars, ads and additional content that make online articles more difficult to read. Readability, created by Arc90 Labs, removes the surrounding material, leaving the main article much cleaner and easier to read. Readability works with most browsers and is easy to install on your computer or mobile device.
Watch this video to see how it works.

This book is about a girl named Felicity Juniper Pickle, and she can see words. Her family has never settled down anywhere, until they find Midnight Gulch, a town rumored to once have been magic. But one day, the magic went away, and Felicity may be the one to bring it back.
I would recommend this book for people who enjoy fantasy books, books about adventure and books that can touch your heart. It you like all of the above, then this book is for you!
