Welcome to the Peterson Library

  •  Hello Peterson Peeps! 

    Happy summer break! I hope you are all having a great summer break. It has been perfect swimming and playing in the water weather. It has also been great weather to stay inside and read a book. I hope you were able to find things to read during the library shutdown. If you haven't already, get signed up for the summer reading program through Wichita Public Library and earn prizes just for reading. 

    If you click on "links" on the left hand side of this page and scroll to the bottom, the Battle of the Books page has been updated. If you are currently a third or fourth grader and would like to participate in Battle of the Books you can start reading from the list!

    You can still access the Destiny homepage and library website. There are many links to learning and enrichment activities.

    I have been reading from the 2020-2021 William Allen White list.  I have finished the book Bob by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead. I also read Small Spaces by Katherine Arden. These are both books that fourth and fifth graders will enjoy. Third graders should be able to read Bob. For those of you who like scary books, you will love Small Spaces. It was a little creepy for me. I especially would not want to see a movie of this book. I read Granted by John David Anderson. This book is maybe a little too much fantasy for me, but it did have a great lesson about friendship and sticking to a job until you are finished. I also read The Season of Styx Malone by Kekla Magoon. This was also a great book about friendship. That is all the WAW books I've read so far. I finished quite a few other books also. I'll be happy to tell you about them when school starts. 

    I always listen to audio books while I walk. I just completed a 20 book series that I loved. I decided to listen to the Harry Potter series since I haven't read them for a very long time. 

    Any time you want to chat about books or need a book suggestion, feel free to email. I would love to hear from you! Stay safe and healthy!
