Rachel James, the Seward Community Library Museum children’s services librarian, came to visit us during the lunch/recess Open Library hour, on Wednesday, October 9, 2013. Ms. James shared about the Library Museum website and the Library Museum’s collections, activities and programs for young people in the Seward area. She also talked about Alaska Book Week, which was October 5th-12th. A selection of Alaska titles from all sections of the library were pulled out for the students.
In the first half an hour, the 3rd-6th grades students welcomed Ms. James enthusiastically with a lot of questions and our time together flew by quickly. In the second half of Open Library, she talked with the 1st-2nd grade students and read Alaska’s Three Bears to them. Afterwards, they enjoyed some free time in the library.
Ms. James will visit us again during Open Library in December, so look out for the announcement and come to find out what’s happening at the Library Museum. Thanks for coming to visit us, Ms. James! See you in November!
