Kiwanis Club purchases books for Bellview library

Books standing upright on library counter, various titles in the Oregon Reader's Choice Awards: 'Under the Egg' by Laura Marx Fitzgerald, 'Gabriel Finley and the Raven's Riddle' by George Hagin, 'By the Grace of Todd' by Louise Galveston and 'The Madman of Piney Woods' by Christopher Paul Curtis. Lying face-up on counter in front of them are Patricia Gallagher Picture Book Award nominees: 'A Rock is Lively' by Dianna Hutts Aston, illustrated by Sylvia Long, 'Dolphin Baby!' by Nicola Davies, illustrated by Brita Granström, and 'On a Beam of Light' by Jennifer Berne, illustrated by Vladimir Radunsky; and Beverly Cleary Children's Choice Award nominees: Archie Takes Flight by Wendy Mass, Jelly Bean by Cynthia Lord and 'Lulu and the Rabbit Next Door' by Hilary McKay

To punctuate Ashland schools’ return from spring break, here’s an “attitude of gratitude.” The books shown here -- nominees in various “reader’s choice” awards that Oregon students can vote on -- were purchased for Bellview Elementary School library using money that was donated by the Kiwanis Club of Ashland, Oregon. Local groups and volunteers enrich our schools so much, and I am deeply appreciative.
