The Matchstick Castle by Keir Graff


We're so excited that Skokie Public Library and The Book Stall are bringing an author to our school! Keir Graff is the author of Matchstick Castle.  All students in 4th and 5th grade will hear him present during an assembly.  

If you'd like a personalized, signed copy of the book, fill out this form and turn it in to the library with cash or check. Forms are due on Monday.

If you'd like to have a chance to have lunch with the author, write your name and a question you want to ask the author on a yellow paper and put it in the box.  A small group of students will be chosen at random on Tuesday.


Skokie Public Library Events

Our local library has some amazing events coming up in January and February! They have free programs about Minecraft, 3D design, bingo, and lego, plus so much more! See their Hullabaloo Newsletter.
