The book & bean is a reading initiative and reward program designed for students to enjoy! Teachers are given one pass per week to give to a deserving student.  The student may use the "get out of class pass" to enjoy coffee and leisure time in the library for that period only.  The student must present the orange book and bean pass to library staff.  Teachers may enjoy the PERK on Wednesdays as well :-)
