Welcome to the Library 2017-2018 School Year!!

I am excited about the fun things planned for this year and serving our students!
Book Bucks
I will be giving “Book Bucks” for students who have returned all library items on time. We will have the “Book Buck Store” at the end of each grading period.
Yellow slips will be given to students this year who have disobeyed the library rules. They will fill out two slips (one slip for the librarian and one for the classroom teacher). Appropriate classroom consequences will be given.

Returning Items
Please remind students to bring library items back on their scheduled library day. If they are absent on their library day the items are automatically renewed for one week. Grades 1-6 are fined 25₵ per item per week. Fines are not due until items are returned. Grace is given if items are back before 9:00 Monday or Tuesday morning. For repeat overdue offenses the student may be asked to keep their library items in the classroom. Kindergarten students are not fined.

Library News!

We will celebrate National Library Week April 8-14, 2018 with the theme, "Libraries Lead." If you have gently used books (suitable for ages 5-12 – no board books) Mrs. Witte will gladly take them. She will see if there are any that can be used in the library, but most will be available for the Literacy Night event “Paws for Books” that will be held May 3rd from 6:00-7:30p.   A Scholastic Book Sale will be held that day and evening, but there will also be a used book table. The student will be able to spend their blue tickets they have been earning to “buy” a used book. If you have any questions feel free to contact Mrs. Witte.

Grandparents' Day!

Fun in the Library!
