  • FP Welcomes Author/Illustrator Vanessa Brantley-Newton

    On Friday, October 28th, the incomparable author/illustrator Vanessa Brantley-Newton visited FP Dalton. She is the illustrator of 99 children's books, including Becoming Vanessa and The King and Queen of Kindergarten. During her visit, Vanessa spoke with students in each grade about how she never saw characters who looked like her in books when she was younger. As a result, she has made it her mission to create books where all children can see themselves, and know that they matter. Her work will be featured at the FP book fair on November 11-12.
  • Welcome back to the Library!

    And just like that, we're back! Kids are already diving back into our book collection.

    Looking forward to a wonderful new school year.
    Your librarians,
    Jordy & Christine
