Library News

The Wendell Cross Virtual Library for June is here! Check out the libraries for Flag Day, Father's Day, the last day of school and some great summer-themed books  There's also a book room for Junie B. Jones, Pete the Cat, Mama Llama and the Click Clack book series. 

Don't forget about the great stories on BookFlix! BookFlix is the online resource that pairs animated storybooks with a related nonfiction eBook.  It is a great way to keep reading, learn new things and have fun doing it.

If you prefer reading books on your own, you can get free ebooks on Amazon and the Barnes and Nobles website.   Remember, it doesn't matter what type of book you read as long as you are reading.  Have fun!
