First Program students are now piloting our Mobile Book Cart! After thoroughly washing their hands, kids can browse from this limited collection, curated by librarians Jordy and Christine, and checkout books to enjoy. Since students cannot come in to the library themselves, we are bringing the library to you!
Use the catalog to find books and place a hold. Books will be delivered to pods for onsite students. If you are in the area and accessible to Dalton, you can pick up from Security: FP books are at 91st Street from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM and MS/HS books are at 89th Street from 8:00 AM-6:00 PM, Monday-Friday. Surprise Me! bags. If you aren't sure what to look for and browsing the catalog is difficult, let a librarian pick a few books fo you! Just fill out this form to tell us a little about what you like to read.
This past Thursday, FP students welcomed Matt de la Peña. Matt is the Newbery award-winning author of such books as Last Stop on Market Street, Carmela Full of Wishes, Love, and most recently, Milo Imagines the World.
Now, he's coming back once more! Join us this Thursday, April 22 from 6:00-7:00PM EST! Families and students of all ages are welcome to join in the First Program Library Zoom room (Zoom ID: 2124235453, OR use the shortcut "fpdalton").
