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.
