The town I grew up in only had a population of 1000 people. There was a grade school which taught kids from kindergarten to the 6th grade and a high school that taught kids from the 7th thru the 12th grade.
The grade school didn’t have a library per say. We had a book mobile that would come once a week. I don’t know what it was about book mobile day but I loved going into that bus and perusing all the books.
I don’t recall there ever being a reading time where we sat on the floor and listened to the teacher read to us. We had a reading period and a reading room, which was similar to the library time that the high school had, where we could read books, magazines, and other things of that nature.
One of the things I remember about the reading room is at least once, maybe twice, a year they had posters for sale that you could buy. I don’t remember who provided them, maybe Scholastic? They were decent priced too. My folks would give me a couple of dollars to pick a few things to buy. One of the posters I bought was a picture of a kitten hanging on to the end of a rope with it’s claws and there was some motivational saying that went with it.
What I am wondering is any of you remember the posters being for sale that you could buy? I think they were a plethora of things you could buy like stickers, notebooks, and books. I was trying to remember who provided them and what the purpose was. Did the money go to the school or was it for a charity?
