Summer Reading & Bookmark Contest!

Hey! This is Murray with a message about the Middle School Summer Reading List to hear it click the triangle arrow thingy above my head!

Then download the lists using the link to the link below to take to the Savage Branch of the Howard County Public Library so you can read some books this summer!

Ask your English & Reading Teacher for Your Fancy Graphically Enhanced List!

Go to our Wikipage to download the XLS list of books!

When you're at the Savage Library enter the Book Mark Contest ....
Here's a message i got from them about it:
"In conjunction with this year's Summer Reading Initiative, Howard County Library announces our first annual bookmark contest. Please encourage any interested students to take part. Materials are available online or at any Howard County Library location.

Let your imagination soar when you enter Howard County Library's Bookmark Contest for children and teens! The contest is open to all children in Kindergarten through 12th grade who live or attend school in Howard County.

Draw a bookmark design on the entry form and return it to any Howard County Library branch by Friday, July 10, 2009. Bookmarks will be judged on originality, design, and reproducibility. The winning bookmarks will be printed and available at all Howard County Library branches beginning September 2009. Students who create the winning bookmarks will be invited to the A+ Celebration on October 27, 2009.
One entry per person. Please see the entry form and contest checklist for full details."

Oh and the List Mr. Jewitt shared with you is there on the wiki, too!
