Sonntag Library Statistics (April Edition)

(April Edition)

April was a very busy month in the Sonntag library! In order to prep for the STAAR testing days, classes came to the library in waves to check out books. 5th graders enjoyed lunch in the library to discuss the March book club book. Furthermore, the Sonntag students also enjoyed listening to a variety of poems during their library times and had the opportunity to take a poem home "in their pocket!" Check out the rest of the happenings in the Sonntag library below. Happy reading! :)
