Election 2016: NES Library President

The Northside Library held it's first ever Book President election.  The race was between Pete the Cat and the Pigeon and it was a tight one.  The second grade students helped campaign for both candidates and worked hard over the past two weeks get students and staff registered and to keep them informed on the issues.  Posters were hung, commercials were made and polls were taken.  On Monday, November 7 students and staff came to the library with their classes to vote for the candidate of their choice.  There was also an option to write-in a candidate.  Students in grades 2-5 voted electronically, while K-1 students used paper ballots.  All students proudly collected an "I voted today" sticker on their way out of the voting booths.  

The library is pleased to announce that Pete the Cat lead the way with just over fifty percent of the votes.  We look forward to having Pete be our library spokesman this year and the voice of all things book related.  We know the library is in good hands with Pete and everything will be "Allllllll goooood...."
