During the month of April Mrs. Behe and Mrs. Day held several events in the Fisher Elementary Library to celebrate reading with the students. Guest readers were invited and fun events were planned to engage students in the love of reading.

Mrs. Mary Shepherd, a local author and illustrator from Mohawk wrote the story The Adventures of Molly and her Dollies. Mrs. Shepherd was a guest reader for second grade students. The students enjoyed the story especially since her children Benjamin and Molly attend Fisher Elementary too.

The Library was also discussing different friendships in April. District Library Media Specialist Steve Inzer stopped by to read the books Enemy Pie by Derek Munson and Sneetches by Dr. Seuss.

April 28-May 2 will be mustache week in the library. Two stories about mustaches will be read and each child will be given a mustache to wear.

One of the books the library will highlight for the month of May will be George Crum and the Saratoga Chip by Gaylia Taylor which talks about George inventing the potato chip in 1853. The kids will learn the chips were invented in Saratoga Springs, NY just an hour and a half away! Students will enjoy this reading a lot as they will get to sample the chips!
