A Magical, Mystical Night

Where else on the planet could you:
  • go on Minli's Journey,
  • have your fortune told
  • be dazzled by amazing card tricks
  • play Zorgally Ball
  •  learn to embroider
  •  crack a code
  •  identify scat
  •  attend Groovy's Cooking School
  • and eat at Jimmy's Diner?
Only at Books in Action! Friday was a great night at Leverett Elementary School. 122 students from Shutesbury, Swift River and Leverett who qualified by reading a minimum of five Massachusetts Children's Book Award Nominees took part in all of the above activities (and more!) It was a wonderful celebration of reading and the culminating event in our MCBA program. Oh--and the winning book in Union 28? Cracker: The Best Dog in Vietnam by Cynthia Kadohata.

The night could not happen without an amazing group of talented and supportive volunteers--we had over 60 parent and teacher volunteers! THANK YOU!

Thanks to our principals, Bob Mahler, Anne Ross and Sheila Hunter who support this collaborative endeavor between the school librarians and give us the time and resources to make it happen, show up every year to help and  even read the books! We are grateful.
