Your child won’t want to miss Library this week!

On December 16, right in the midst of our Chanukah week, younger students will get SILLY, as I read the GOOFIEST Chanukah books in the Library. Older students will learn why cheese is as much a part of Chanukah as fried foods as we delve into the Book of Judith, also an apocryphal book excluded from the canon. Judith’s story can be a little bloody, so be prepared for some gore from some of our finest renaissance painters!
