Our Book Fair is Coming!

Our Book Fair will be here before we know it, and it is the first one that we have had in person since December of 2019! Are you excited? I certainly am. More details will follow, but for now we’d love to have you sign up to help us during the Fair. The Book Fair will run from April 4-8, with two afternoons for family shopping.

Winter Reading Challenge Starts Tuesday!

Our annual Winter Reaching Challenge has returned! After a year’s hiatus we will begin the 2022 challenge on Tuesday, February 1. The theme is Olympic Reading Bingo and it will run until February 20. Students may complete the entire bingo sheet to earn a GOLD medal, a single row to earn SILVER, or any three squares to earn a BRONZE medal. Medals will be awarded after February vacation. Two lucky participants from each grade level will also win a gift certificate to our upcoming Spring Book Fair. I can’t wait to see the books that students choose for each bingo square. Happy Reading to everyone!

Welcome Back, Sippican School!

It has been so lovely to welcome everyone back to our school library after a year and a half away. The library is once again ringing with the sounds of happy student browsers, busy groups collaborating, and stories being enjoyed! Book selection began in September, and we have already circulated 748 items. If that isn’t cause for celebration, I don’t know what is!

And, side note: Students may still request a library book via our Bookmobile form!
