Monthly Newsletter for May 2017

All Library Books Due by May 19th

All library books are due back no later than May 19th! It's inventory time in the library, which means we are getting close to our final days of check out.

If all books checked out on a student's account are returned by May 12th, that student will be allowed to check out ONE book for the week of May 15th-19th. But they must return that one book by May 19th. If there are still books on a student's account on May 12th, that student will not be able to check out books during the final week of checkout.

The library will no longer check out books after May 19th. Please help your student locate any lost or misplaced library books and return them to the library by May 19th.

We will send home overdue notices after May 19th for those students with books still on their accounts. Thank you for your help!

Last Day for Booktalk Lunch Club is May 2nd

Our 5th grade Booktalk Lunch Club will meet for the last time on May 2nd. Every member has seemed to enjoy talking with other avid readers about the looks they have read. Every meeting, we are talking books, watching book trailers, and making book recommendations to our friends. Thank you to each member that was apart of our library Booktalk Lunch Club this school year!

May 1st-5th is the Last Week for Library Helpers

The last week for library helpers to help in the library will be Monday, May 1st-Friday, May 5th. Thank you to all of the 3rd-5th grade students that applied to be a library helper this school year. We had over 75 applicants, but were only able to hire about 24 helpers. If you were not a helper this year, then please reapply to help next school year! I hope to have helper applications available in September.
