Check out what we've been doing in the library!    




         Students at Woerner Elementary were treated to a very special visit by Newberry Award-winning author, Ingrid Law.   She is the author of “Savvy”,“ Scumble”, and “Switch”.  She spoke to the students about her book, “Savvy”, and what inspired her to become an author. She also shared some of her special words from her “author’s toolbox”.    After her presentation, she answered the student’s questions, and signed books. The visit was sponsored by the St. Louis Public Library, as part of its “Reading Pays--Pass it on”, Initiative.   Free copies of “Savvy” were provided to students in grades 3-6, at all library branches.
