Oak Hill Elementary School fifth-graders Anthony Compton, left, and Chevy Wykoff take some time away from their class to look for a new book to read. Oak Hill students are bringing some extra money to school this week to do the same. Until Friday, the school’s media center is holding its annual Scholastic Book Fair, a fundraiser for the school. Students in all grade levels have the chance to purchase a variety of books. The fair kicked off with a special family read-in on Thursday night.

MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) -- Michelle Obama has honored two Michigan public libraries at a White House ceremony.

The first lady presented the 2010 National Medal for Museum and Library Service to five libraries and five museums from across the nation on Friday.

Peter White Public Library in Marquette, Mich., and West Bloomfield Township Public Library are among the recipients.

Winners are chosen based on their innovative approaches to public service and improving communities.
