LIBRARY CORNER – ANNOUNCEMENTS
ROZANNA BARANETS, SPMS LIBRARIAN
Birdie Sitter for parts of Summer Break
Looking for a loving indoor home for the library’s finches – Juju, Kewpie and Mango. Must be able to keep them for July and/or August (until school starts) or large portions thereof.
Finches have a soft, unassuming little “cheep” and are extremely easy to take care of. They are not loud, screechy birds.
They come with an overnight bag of food and other goodies, and just need water changed every other day.
If you are interested, please email Ms. Baranets at email@example.com
Thank you Library Volunteers!
School text book returns (science, math, history, ELD, Spanish, library books…everything) will take place May 19-25. See flyer below for more information.
