Welcome to another year of great reading, great books, and learning in the library. I look forward to seeing Friends School of Minnesota students explore the library this year and share great books together. 

What is was your favorite summer read?

FSM students, come to the library and fill out a form with your name, your favorite summer read and the reason you liked the book. A grown up can help you fill it out (for younger children).

I will select my favorite of your favorites and reward you with a little book-friendly prize. I can’t wait to hear what FSMN has been reading over the summer.
