Kids’ Community Reading Challenge
We love you, North Merrick kids and families! Let’s read together while we’re apart. For every 100 books we read as a community, we’ll add something special to the Children’s Room to enjoy together. We’re starting with decorations– submit a book title and vote for your favorite theme! Submit as many books as you read– each book entitles you to a vote. Let’s see how many books we can read!.
We have computers with Microsoft Office 2016 (Word, Excel, Publisher and Powerpoint) on a fast internet connection with the latest web browsers and printing.
