Pre-service teachers with Millikin University just completed their five-week course at the Library this week.
This weekend is the birthday of great children's authors. Friday is the birthday of Trina Schart Hyman.
It’s Battle of the Books week in Urbana! All school year, diligent readers from three Urbana Schools have read books from a list of 28 books to prepare to answer questions about the books. This week, spirited book battles took place to pick a representative team from Leal, Wiley, and Yankee Ridge Schools to move on to the Urbana District competition scheduled for Friday.
School Champions moving on to the final Battle:
Leal School: “The Team 3 Files: The 100 – Year Old Winning Streak”
Wiley School: “The Reading Rangers”
The end of February is fast approaching which means the end of the Winter Reading Program. If you haven't already turned in your sheet for a free book then stop by the question desk with your completed sheet to get a free book. We've had a great response this year and still have lots of great books to choose from.
