Hi, I'm Erica. One of your librarians at MCDS. The new year is a great time to get to know each other better. I'm giving an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at my desk in the library so you can get to know me better.
You'll notice a lot of dragons. Our story room is called the dragon room, and it has a history of attracting dragons. You can read more about our big dragons made by alums and see a stop motion video of one being made here.
My favorite animal is the gorilla, I love Doctor Who (can you see the dalek?), and I identify with Piglet. I go to Scotland every summer and I love seeing the special Highland Cows there, so I got a mini one for my desk. I'm a quarter Swedish and I got the Dala horse and little witch while visiting there a couple summers ago.
What about you? What's your favorite animal? Which Winnie-the-Pooh character do you most identify with? Stop by the library and let me know!
Hi, I'm Tessa, one of your librarians too! This is a view of my desk in the workroom behind the check-out desk. The two horses were made by Don, the head of maintenance, from parts he took from my file cabinet. I love horses and have spent many happy hours riding. The hedgehog is one of my favorite animals in stories. Years ago a parent gave me the action figure on the bulletin board...you pull the lever and her finger goes to her lips in a shushing motion. We thought is was so funny since we would never do that in the library. You will also see one of my favorite quotes. Stop by the library and share something about yourself!
At the end of every school year, we read character books to every kindergarten to third grade class. They vote on their favorite, which gets added to our hall of fame and joins us on summer adventures. This year's candidates were Rocket, Sophie, Dodsworth, Bear, and Otis. After much deliberation and some difficult decisions, the winner is......
Rocket! We had a lovely crowning ceremony and victory party with all of our past winners in attendance to congratulate them on this honor. Now, on to the prizes: Rocket has won an all-expenses paid trip to visit you this summer! Print out Rocket to take with you, or add him to your vacation photos easily with our .png images. If you need any help, simply e-mail your photos to me and I'll add our winners in for you. Here's some pictures of us with last year's winners Piggie & Gerald:
Rocket has packed his bags and is ready for any adventure. He has also requested that some students simply invite them into their homes to read with them. As we all know, he loves reading! So, help us congratulate our winners and invite them to visit YOU this summer! Remember to send all your pictures to email@example.com and I'll make a display with them in the fall.
