International School Library Month

As October draws to a close, so does International School Library Month and Canadian Library Month.  We hope you learned something about the vital role that libraries play in our country, and that school libraries play in education around the globe. Most importantly, we hope you were able to celebrate the wonderful gift of libraries by visiting some, including your local public library, and especially, your school library.

Come down to see us in person, or visit online– even though October is ending, you can make use of your school library all year long.

Believe in Yourself

Ziggy Marley was born on this day in 1968.  One of the children of reggae legend Bob Marley, Ziggy would go on to become a famous musician in his own right.  Many might disagree, but some feel his best work was “Believe in Yourself.”

“Believe in Yourself” is the theme song for “Arthur” the beloved animated program based on the books by Marc Brown.

ISLM and CLM Connections: Arthur gave us a library anthem, the “Library Card Song.”
