Partnering with the Bozeman Schools Foundation, the Library will host all first graders and their families for an afternoon of bison activities on Friday Sept. 20 at 2:30pm. Each first grader receives the book Buffalo Music by Tracey Fern through the Links to Literacy project. The Schools Foundation chose a companion book to the One Book – One Bozeman selection, Last Stand: Ted Turner’s Quest to Save a Troubled Planet , by Bozeman author Todd Wilkinson, to strengthen the community-read program and involve the elementary schools.
The Library program enhances the book with help from Montana Outdoor Science School, the Pioneer Museum, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, and others, including Yellowstone National Park. First graders and families won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about the furry beasts in Bozeman’s backyard! For more information, call Mary Jo O’Donnell at the Schools Foundation, 522-6071.
