As we get ready for our spring break, two reminders from Ms. Ohanian in the Addison Library:
First, the library has audio books on cd available for check out. These audio books are great for listening to on long car rides, while doing spring cleaning, gardening etc....
Second, the authors Dan Santat and Aaron Reynolds are visiting Addison in April. To order one of their books. personalized for students, turn in order form to the library by Friday, March 30th!

I read because one life isn't enough, and in the page of a book I can be anybody;
I read because the words that build the story become mine, to build my life;
I read not for happy endings but for new beginnings; I'm just beginning myself, and I wouldn't mind a map;
I read because I have friends who don't, and young though they are, they're beginning to run out of material;
I read because every journey begins at the library, and it's time for me to start packing;
I read because one of these days I'm going to get out of this town, and I'm going to go everywhere and meet everybody, and I want to be ready.”
