The holiday reading is a day that the fire is lit in the library and all grades can come down; every teacher can share their favorite holiday story. It is a tradition that started a long time ago, even before Mr. Ruddy came to the school. It was started by another MKA librarian who worked at the school year ago. Mr. Ruddy enjoys sharing his stories with students. This year, he wants to share The Night Before Christmas, a pop up book. Mr. Ruddy loves the illustrations. He will also read The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming, a Hanukkah story by Lemony Snicket. Readers at the holiday reading come and share stories from different countries and faiths. This year, the holiday reading is on Friday, December 16th, which is a D day on the middle school calendar.
