I am interested!
Hi, my name is Becky and I am writing from Niagara Falls. I am an involved parent in the school district, with 5 children in various schools. Our family is also very involved in our community library. Today I saw our librarian decorated the children’s library with beautiful posters that she got from you.
I am the coordinator for several large school community events in our city, including the district Spelling Bee, Teacher Appreciation celebrations and a district wide Family Reading Night. I am currently looking for reading related items that I could use as prizes for classroom teachers to use in their classroom. Your posters look like something that would be really cool to incorporate into our events!
Would it be possible for me to get some of your posters without being a librarian myself? Please let me know how I can do this.
Many thanks, Becky Hedgepeth 🙂
