You are welcome to come into the library to choose books for information and for pleasure. I look forward to helping you in the library. The library is an extension of your classroom. The same expectations apply. 2 books may be checked out for two weeks at a time. You can renew books unless they are requested by others. The more you read, the smarter you'll get. Knowledge is power!
I am happy to be the librarian at Franklin & Grant Middle Schools. Kids, reading, books, and libraries are my passions. Want a good book to read? Ask me, Mrs. Hall.
“School libraries are the foundation of our culture, not luxuries.”

"At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better." ~~ Barack Obama (from a speech to the American Library Association June 25, 2005)
