Northaven partnered with the Frayser Branch Library to promote National Library Card Sign Up Month. Dean Moore, library manager, visited Northaven Elementary School and talked with preKindergarten to fifth grade students, along with parents about the benefits of owning a library card and the services that are provided for patrons. The teen service librarians, Kenya Smith and Abdoul Yessoufu, also spoke to our sixth to eighth graders and their parents about library card ownership, services, and activities available to middle schoolers. In addition, students and families who showed the library media specialist his or her library card will have their picture taken and placed on the Keep Calm bulletin board.
