And we have a winner!

Katie and her proud Mom and Dad!

At the 2014 Massachusetts School Library Conference, Katie Lew's bookmark was chosen as an honorable mention in the Grades 4-5-6 category of the annual bookmark contest.  She, along with 11 other students from across the Commonwealth were invited to the State House today to receive their awards.   For the first time, all recipients were girls.  Katie even received a special citation from the office of Jason Lewis.  Way to go Katie!

Carolyn DeCristofano who authored the book, , 


gave an inspiring speech about the importance of school libraries. Listening to her may just encourage our girls, to take an active interest in STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
