Brownies and Books: New Book Preview for Teachers

Earlier this month, we gave our Elementary School teachers a sneak preview of our new books. We created featured displays of various genres, authors and themes to encourage browsing. New Social Studies books were also highlighted.

Teachers were invited to peruse throughout the day in search of new teaching tools or suggestions for their students to read independently. We had a steady stream of visitors all day long. Dozens of books were checked out by our excited teacher readers!

Our teachers gave us lots of positive feedback about the event so we will definitely be hosting another similar opportunity this year. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to enjoy a reading treat and a sweet treat.
