Here’s the third reading challenge of the year — read a book over 500 pages long. We’re thinking a paper based book, so for those who read on electronic gizmos, read an appropriately long book, so Under the Dome by King, War and Peace by Tolstoy, or Centennial by Michener. I’m sure you can think of a few more. So give it a go and post your books here!

New books added in January are now posted online!  Expect to see a few more new ones on the shelves in the next week or so!

How are you doing with our Reading Challenge?  The current challenge is read a Dorothy Canfield Fisher book.  For those of you who don’t know, every year Vermont selects 30 books for students in grades 4-8 to read should they wish to. In the spring students vote for their favorite books to select a winner of the “Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award” for the year. The Department of Libraries has a variety of information on this year’s list and a page with links to the yearly lists all the way back to 1957. Peacham Library has large the current DCF books prominently on display, and has large colored dots near the spine label of all DCF books from the last 10 years to help you spot these special books. And why is there a reading list for Vermont students named after Dorothy Canfield Fisher? Find out more on the DCF website.
