Hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (The library will not be open on July 4.) Visit the 2018 Summer Reading webpage to learn more.

    The Gift of a Visiting Author

    FWCD fourth-graders, along with fifth-graders at The Leadership Academy at Maude I Logan and students at Starpoint School, enjoyed a special program with author Ed Masessa earlier this month.

    Masessa, a childhood friend of Upper School parent Holly Ellman, was in Dallas for the annual Texas Libraries Association conference. When he travels, he offers a school visit to old friends. Masessa’s books, The Wandmaker and The Wandmaker's Apprentice, are best-suited for students in grades 4-6. “Our middle schoolers were taking ERB tests during the week the visit was being planned, and I felt it was better to pass on the visit than just share it with one grade level,” said Tammy Wolford, Head Librarian. “Then I got the idea to give the visit to The Leadership Academy at Maude I Logan, which was our ‘Books for Kids’ beneficiary during Book Fair in December.”
