What's happening in May
Help the REC!
Which days are important to you? Fill out our super short survey!
The REC (Race and Ethnicities Club) is compiling a list of dates/celebrations/observances that are important to our Masco community.
Background: Have you seen the REC Flag Project displayed outside the library? Thanks to your responses to the question, "What are your countries of origin?", we were able to create over 70 flags into a unified image! Now that we know where our Masco community is "from", we want to know what is important to us. Please share the events, celebrations and dates that are important to you. It can be anything from Earth Day to Black History Month to Easter. We will share out the results!
Maker Space Challenge
Even the cat can't stop this one!

Why? Bragging rights! The grade who reads the most books wins. Also, 4 people in the winning grade will win $25 gift cards to a local business in a raffle.
