NHCS After-School Program - at the GNL
Yesterday the library welcomed 15 third, fourth, and fifth graders from New Hampton Community School's Project Promise after-school program. Under the direction of NHCS teachers Miss Markey and Mr. McCann, these students have chosen to come to the Gordon-Nash on Wednesdays for the next few weeks to borrow books and find out more about the library and what we have to offer our young patrons.
Students had a tour of the library, then listened to The Incredible Book-Eating Boy, a story by Irish author/illustrator Oliver Jeffers. At the craft tables, they designed their own bookmarks to use for the books they borrowed and brought back to school to read in the coming week.
It was wonderful to have so many well-behaved and eager "big kids" in the library all at once. We're looking forward to seeing them again next Wednesday!
