Oh my gourd, It’s National Pumpkin Day!

That’s right, October 26th is National Pumpkin Day. In a month filled with pumpkin spice treats, and jack-o-lanterns today is the day that we celebrate pumpkins. Some clever staff members have decorated pumpkins that you can see at the Bartlett Public Library on the shelves near the circulation desk! Check them out if you stop by!

Bluestem Book Club!

The Illinois School Library Media Association’s Bluestem award is designed for students in grades 3-5 who are ready for longer titles than found on the Monarch list, but not quite ready for the sophistication of some of the Rebecca Caudill titles.

The Bluestem list of nominees is available online: https://www.islma.org/pdf/Bluestem%202018%20Master%20List-1.pdf

You can also check out the Bluestem titles here at the library, and kids in grades 4 – 6 can join the Bluestem Book Club at the library and enjoy book-talks, games, and activities.
