Harrisburg Elementary School Visit

School librarians are the best! They are planners, coordinators, requisitionists, organizers, PR experts, educators, and literacy promoters, just to name a few of their duties. I've been honored that so many school librarians have invited me to their schools to speak to the students.

Yesterday, I visited a school new to me. It was my first visit to Harrisburg Elementary, and the first time I'd met school librarian Belinda Self. Because of her gracious invitation, I had a chance to talk to all third and fourth grade students about the importance of literacy, and, of course, about The Legend of Sassafras House.

Some individual students and groups posed for photos, and there was a lucky t-shirt winner. 

The students at Harrisburg Elementary are enthusiastic about reading. They were attentive and had interesting questions for me, even one about my age that I tried to artfully dodge. Thanks so much to Belinda Self for making my visit a success!
