Lakeside Primary School recently held its annual Spring Scholastic Book Fair. This year’s theme was “Happy Camper”. School Librarian, Raven Veal, and Library Clerk, Wendy Acosta added a twist to the traditional fair this year by inviting other community leaders. Parents and students shopped together on Family Night in the school’s media center. Barnes and Nobles Booksellers Community Relations Manager, Mrs. Kisamore, read Campfire stories to the kids who shopped on Family Night.
The Ascension Parish Library Youth Services department created “Happy Camper Crafts” with students and talked to parents about the upcoming Summer Reading Program. APL also held a library card sign-up drive. Happy shoppers received a “Camper’s Crunch” snack upon completing their purchase! Students enjoyed the many activities of the Book Fair!
