Library Card Contest Winners at Middle School

Held annually in September, Library Card Sign-up Month is a time for libraries across the nation to remind parents and children that a library card is the most important school supply of all.

In conjunction with Sign-up Month, East Islip Middle School librarian Valerie Ware runs a library card contest each year to encourage students and their families to get library cards. The 2012 winners were the sixth-graders from Janice Laube’s sixth-period English language arts class, who achieved perfect results.

“My congratulations to Mrs. Laube’s class for having 100 percent of the students being East Islip Public Library cardholders,” said Ware.
