The most unusual thing today was we went to work on the new book wall. As many of you know, there was an art installation of a bookshelves with books on it outside the library. Parents tried to restore it earlier this year, but the damage to the artwork from years of rain and sun was simply too great. Plus, the underlying wood had been affected by dry rot in places. So parents paid for a new mural and Frances Okwu and Jason Stanton have been busy preparing a new book mural. This one will be on the side of the wall facing the reading garden.
Our students made “books” out of pieces of lumber. These had already been painted; the students provided the title, author, and “cover” artwork.
Alysoun Higgins provided the children with materials and some guidance and they had a great time picking a title and decorating their “book.”
