    In the Spotlight

    Coming Soon: Seattle Children's Book Festival

                                                                  Seattle Children's Book Festival Logo

    On September 28, please join us for the first Seattle Children’s Book Festival, from 11am to 3pm, at the Greenwood Elementary School campus located at 144 NW 80 Street in Seattle, WA. This event will be held both outdoors and indoors, rain-or-shine.

    This free festival will feature award-winning children’s book authors and illustrators from all over the United States. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet favorite authors and illustrators, purchase signed copies of their books (book sales courtesy of local bookstores Phinney Books and Madison Books), participate in hands-on literacy activities and crafts, and hear several of our authors/illustrators present throughout the day. 

    Following the festival, organizers will be getting outstanding new books into the Seattle Public Schools that need them the most. During the festival you’ll have a chance to purchase copies of any festival author/illustrators books for direct donation to Seattle Public Schools at a reduced price. In addition, after the event, Madison and Phinney Books will be giving 20% of autographed book sales to the festival organization. The directly donated books will go towards outfitting classroom libraries and the 20% of signed book sales proceeds (after recovering any outstanding festival expenses) will go towards putting on FREE book fairs at the Seattle Public Schools that serve the highest poverty populations. Access to new, relevant, award-winning books should be a right, not a privilege. Please email Anne Aliverti  (ahaliverti@seattleschools.org) with any questions. Thanks for your support!


    Beat Summer Slide

    Summer Reading Logo

    Although off to a late start, summer's finally upon us, which means it's time for Bryant Library's annual Summer Reading Bingo. If your student did not receive a form by the end of school, email ahaliverti@seattleschools.org. We designed our Bingo to encourage readers to reach broadly--break out of the tried and true--and beat "summer slide."

    Literacy experts note that summer slide of learning occurs when students are out of the school habit. For a little more information, visit this Scholastic website. Fortunately, reading, in all its shapes and forms, can help students maintain those sharp noggins! Reading to self, reading with someone else, being read to, or listening to audio books are all ways to stay ahead. Some resources for book ideas:

    Enjoy summer and READ!

    Bryant Book Fair
    Raises $2,500 for Our Partner School!

    On the week of June 3-7, Bryant Library hosted a book fair from which all proceeds benefit Seattle Public School students attending Read-a-Rama: an outdoor literacy camp, which seeks a lasting impact upon learning outcomes and attitudes toward reading, literacy, and literature, particularly for those most in need of intervention.

    The Bryant Community responded enthusiastically to this endeavor, and we experienced standing room only for several days! We are pleased to provide our friends with $2,500 towards their endeavor. Thank you to all the Bryant moms who helped set up, run, and take down our fair. And thanks to all our patrons who eagerly attended our fair--we couldn't have done this without all of you.
