Thanks to the Jersey City Public Library System, The Bookmobile arrived last week.  The First Grade had the opportunity to go on board, sit on the carpet, and read favorite stories. One student exclaimed, "Wow! It's like the Magic School Bus!"  Everyone enjoyed this new experience. The Bookmobile will be coming to us every two weeks.
