The Reading Rockets Book Club will have its first post spring break meeting this Wednesday, April 8th in the library’s media lab during lunch.  As always, we will simply discuss what each member is reading at the moment and the meeting will take place during lunch in the media lab (enter by door next to vending machines).  Attendance is voluntary-you can come to a meeting even if you haven’t before and you are not obligated to come to more meetings (though it wouldn’t be discouraged!).    See Mr. Atteberry about the text reminder program if interested.

Due to the fact that it has been over a week since anyone has signed up for lunch, here is the menu for today: regular is chicken strips and ala carte is cheese pizza.
