Last year the Lanpher Library started a tradition for May 1st.
Inspired by the book "Wishtree", by Katherine Applegate, we invited children from HPES and community members of all ages to come to the Library and write their wishes on strips of fabric. They then got to tie their wishes in the branches of our Pin Oak tree...just like the community members in the book had for generations and generations.
This year is different, but we're still going to have a Wishtree!
If you want to make one wish for us to write down on fabric for you, please fill out the anonymous online form below. Mrs. Bryce, the Librarian at Hyde Park Elementary School created the form for students, teachers and families, but please use it no matter who you are. Click "family" please if you're not a student or teacher. We're all one community family afterall!
We'll start putting wishes in the tree on May 1st, but we'll accept wishes for a few weeks!
Mrs. Bryce included links to more info. about the book "Wishtree", by Katherine Applegate on the form, including a way that you can borrow and download the ebook with your library card!
Please let me know if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Copies of the book are available to borrow for free through the National Emergency Library: archive.org
