Dear Friends,                                  June 2014

This is the last month of the school year and our last newsletter until the fall. Minigrants have been mailed and final reports received, the EJK Bookmaking winners have their awards and their books, and for us, it's time for planning and projects that keeps us surprisingly busy on hot days.

But that's not to say we won't have any fun - we'll be taking in the EJK Family Concert and other Celebrate Brooklyn! events, catching up on the latest picture books and coming up with ideas for teachers, kids and parents for the next school year.

Here's hoping that we all enjoy a season of tame weather and summer pleasures. See you in September!
