Joanna Goldfarb, youth service librarian from the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library in Monticello, visited the Cooke  School and read the book, The Three Ninja Pigs, which is a different version of The Three Little Pigs classic story.

Ms. Goldfarb spoke to students about the library's new location and what the children might be able to check out of the library. and She also gave each student an application to bring home for parents to sign so students could receive a library card.

The students really enjoyed the story and learning about the library. Thank you, Joanna Goldfard, and we hope to see you again.
