A NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION Make your child's education one of your priorities for the new year. A healthy lifestyle, less technology, and more outreach are all great ways to start the new year, but don't forget a gift to MBEF to enrich and empower your child at school. mbef.org/givetoday.

In the Library

GREAT GATORS ARE GREAT READERS Wow! 3,197 books were checked out in December with picture books, graphic novels, and books in a series being the most popular sections. New series titles coming in January: Diary of a Minecraft Zombie, I Survived, Puppy Place, and Thea Stilton. Thank you to GVPTA for supporting the growth of our collection so we always have the books kids want to read! grandviewlibrary.info.
