Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting two esteemed guest speakers, Ms. Vera and Rabbi Avrum Savitsky from the Brooklyn Public Library, Homecrest Branch. This delightful event was specially organized for our elementary school kids, creating a vibrant and educational atmosphere.
Engaging Insights into the World of Libraries: The event aimed to introduce students to the wonderful world of libraries, emphasizing what these institutions stand for and how they operate. Ms. Vera and Rabbi Avrum Savitsky shared valuable insights into the inner workings of a library, explaining how books and various media materials can be borrowed for exploration and learning.
Interactive Sessions with Guest Speakers: The highlight of the event was the opportunity for our students to engage with the guest speakers directly. They not only learned about the library but also had the chance to listen to captivating stories shared by Ms. Vera and Rabbi Avrum Savitsky. The interactive nature of the session encouraged our young learners to ask questions and delve into the fascinating world of literature.
Enthusiastic Responses from Students: The event left a lasting impression on our students, as they expressed their excitement and appreciation. Selim, a 4th-grade student, exclaimed, "This event was amazing. I liked it because they showed us all of my favorite books." Maleeka, another 4th grader, shared, "The guest speakers were so nice. I liked it a lot." Berrin, a 3rd-grade student, added, "My overall experience was good. I loved it when he was talking about Dogman. They have Dogman in the library, and I love Dogman and Catkit."
