Students have a regulary scheduled library class once each week with the librarians: Mrs. Lee or Mrs. Moss. They are able to check out books at this time and are also encouraged to visit the library at various times throughout the week for various learning activities. Books are due weekly (but can be renewed for up to three weeks) and can be returned through the return bin outside the library or during their library class. Our goal is to make books acessible to all students so they can share literature with their families and friends. The joy of reading can be a whole family affair. We also have some parenting books for sign out. Our library collection can be viewed online through our school website or through the blue 'here' destiny link in the first sentence above.
For three days, in November, with the PACs help, we hold a Scholastic book fair, where children and families may purchase current trade books at a reasonable price. Several draws are held and 2 students from each division receive a free book of their choice.
Here's a poem that I learned with I was very small:
"A book, I think
is very like, a little golden door.
It takes me into places
That I've never been before
It leads me into fairy land
and countries near and far
But best of all, that golden door
Always stands ajar."
When was the last time you cracked the pages of a good book?
