Activities To Try At Home

Break Activities

In October, two students asked if there was a way for the broader library community to join her in participating in "Inktober." The idea was a huge success! Students created drawings surrounding daily themes, which were then displayed within the library.

  

To celebrate Halloween, students wrote six-word scary stories on Post-It notes and hung them up to scare their peers and librarians.
