This weeks “Glick’s Pick:” Time to Read books!
Fran Glick is the BCPS coordinator of library media programs and digital resources.
Each week this summer, “Glick’s Picks” recommends books for Baltimore County Public Schools students and families. While things are different this summer in many ways, all BCPS students have Baltimore County Public Library accounts that enable them to access eBooks and to reserve up to five items to pick up at their local library branches.
Fran Glick is the BCPS coordinator of library media programs and digital resources, and under her leadership, BCPS was named National School Library Program of the Year 2017 by the American Association of School Librarians.
Glick loves to share literature with students, and, as an adjunct professor at Towson University, she teaches courses in children’s and young adult literature. She delights in suggesting books for students and introducing adults to the power of books written for children and teens. Happy reading! KINDERGARTEN GRADE 3
