"Lego" of your Legos!
We need your generous donations for Youth Services! Mrs. Harvey is requesting donations of any Legos that your child no longer plays with. These will be used during the Summer Reading Program 2015. If you have any to donate, please take them in a box to the front desk at your local Chesterfield Library Branch. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated!
Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge
We are in to a new year….a new reading challenge!! This year we will be stirring up the pot a bit…the soup pot. We have kicked off the “Alphabet Soup” Reading Challenge. It will run from Jan 1st, 2014 through Dec 31st, 2014.
The challenge is to read a total of 52 books: 26 alphabetically by Title and 26 alphabeticalyl by Author. It’s a great way to challenge yourself to read books and authors you normally would not have selected. We hope you end up reading everything from A-Z. Write you book titles and authors on a spoon and put in the Soup Bowl at the library. You can get your spoons and more details from the library staff.
