Welcome Back!! This is going to be a very exciting year for the Crossing Students. Mrs. Drews will be teaching Library with the 6th graders and I will be having Library class with 4th and 5th grade. The children will have Library weekly to checkout books and meet with the Specialist every other week.

At the end of last year the Spencer Library was awarded a $4000 grant from the New Lenox Foundation to purchase material that promotes creativity. More details will be coming soon about the amazing material that will be available in the Library!
