Coming soon---I'm super excited about this new series from Rick Riordan. For those students that love mythology, here is a series that will be based on Norse Mythology! It will be out in October, and I promise to get a copy for the school library.
I don't have this one yet, but it's on sale today so I will be getting it for the library ASAP. I know that a lot of kids are really liking this series. Click on the above link to the official Origami Yoda website.
Dan Gutman is not one of my favorite authors, but he's a favorite for kids! His books are checked out all the time in the library! He is very funny! Here is a link to some tips for parents that he wrote to help encourage your children to read. It's cute:
I just got home last night from a wonderful library conference in Berea, Kentucky. I came home with a bag full of goodies, tons of great ideas, and a nice stack of books for the library that I won! This conference helped me get very excited about this upcoming school year.

Here is a website for books that have movies. This might be something fun for you to do during the month of July with your family. Read the book first, then watch the movie. Which was better? All of these books and movies can be found at the McCracken County library. Or, come by on Thursday afternoon to Morgan Library from 4-7 to check out one of these books listed here.
My name is Mrs. Kelly Veatch. This will be my 21st year of teaching at Morgan Elementary. I am so excited to be a school librarian. I love reading and books, and I love to share my passion of reading with the students at Morgan Elementary! I am looking forward to a wonderful school year.
