Literacy Day 2012

What a day this is! We have had live author visits, Skype author visits, a news reporter and other mystery readers, and so many people dressed as their favorite book characters. I am glad I am not the one judging the door decorations this year - they are all wonderful! Here are some pictures from our day!
