Lynbrook Lucky Leprechauns Love Literacy!
For RIF of NOVA week, the Lynbrook Elementary School library in Fairfax County became a medieval castle with fire-breathing dragons, stone turrets, and a big sign, reading: “Once upon a time...” The young readers were quick to pick out their books...before slipping into make believe and coloring dragons and other medieval scenes.
Librarian Julie Brannan, a long-time RIF supporter, shared some tangible evidence about the impact of RIF of NOVA books. Two Lynbrook graduates, sisters now in high school and college, returned to their elementary school with a box of the RIF books they had received as students. They asked Julie to pass their treasures on to other children -- with the hope that they, too, would learn to love reading.
