New Year, New Books

Thanks to two very successful Book Fairs last year, we have nearly 800 new titles are on our shelves with an average publication date of 2019. Speaking of Book Fairs, we are excited to host our Fall Book Fair in September 26-30. Spring Book Fair will be April 24-28. Be on the lookout for more details in the Friday Flash.

Self-checkout & additional hours for avid readers

We are also excited about the return of our self-check out station and expanded check-out hours on Tuesdays (4th Period) and Thursdays (First Period) beginning the week of September 6th!

Mighty Monarch Book Club for G1-G5 (Monthly, Thursdays 2:45-3:30)

Attention Readers: Book Club is back and will focus on a monthly book that will be shared in the Friday Flash. Book Club books will be posted with recommended ages, but all G1-G5 students who have completed the book are welcome to join the meeting.

Students must RSVP to each book club meeting. Parents are responsible for childcare or pickup after the meeting ends. September’s RSVP form can be found here.

If you cannot obtain a copy of any monthly Book Club book, please check with Mrs. Lavallee; there are some free copies to pass around the school, as needed.

Middle School: First Chapter Fridays & Library Page Program

Every Friday during lunch/recess, up to 20 Middle School students can come listen to a guest reader from our Faculty and Staff who will read the first few chapters of a book they want to share. At the end of the session, we will draw the name of one of the lucky attendees who will get to keep a copy of the book!

Library Pages is a lunchtime library volunteer program for middle school students (G6-G8). Applications will be accepted starting in mid-September. Once selected, each 3-person grade level team will spend one lunch/recess in the library per week as part of this leadership and service opportunity.
