Northern Hills Library News
Happenings from August/September 2017
The library is up and running and things are already busy! Third-fifth graders completed orientation and had a great time reviewing what they learned on the Quizzz app. PK-2 have been learning all about book care and how to borrow books.
On September 15, the entire school celebrated International Dot Day. It is inspired by the book "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds. The book teaches us that everyone is important no matter what and encourages us to go out and make our mark in the world.
We have a fantastic group of fourth graders helping out in the library this year. They assist with various library duties such as shelving, turning in books and setting up for events. We are thankful for them and they help us keep the library operations running smoothly!
Fourth and fifth grade were treated to a visit from the author Diana Lopez. She spoke about what it takes to create a story and where she gets her inspiration. She used her book, "Nothing Up My Sleeve" to highlight the process. Each teacher was given an autographed copy from the library to read aloud to their class. Ms. Lopez has a new book coming out on October 10th, It is inspired by the Pixar Animation Studios' upcoming movie Coco.
This visit was sponsored by Library Services and we really appreciate them doing this for our campus.
