Glenview Library Letter

Notes from the Library...

  • School Library Month is coming up in April! Be on the lookout for some fun contests sponsored by Limitless Libraries!
  • Please remind your students that when they are using books from Limitless Libraries, they need to leave the white sticker on the back (the one that says "To be removed by NPL staff only"). Thanks!
  • AR Word Clubs: Word Count reports and AR Word Club certificates were in your boxes yesterday afternoon. Students can stop by any time with their certificate to choose their free book!
  • Overdue notices were printed this morning, and are in your boxes now. If you know your students came in today to exchange books after the reports were printed, don't worry about those students. We just want to make sure we haven't lost any books during the snow days. :)

DEAR Day - RESCHEDULED - Tuesday, May 5, 2015

  • The district wide DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) has been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 5.

  • We had a great group of community volunteers ready to read to every class. Hopefully, most of them will also be available on May 5. As soon as the new volunteer schedule is finalized, I will share it with you!

Scholastic Book Fair - Thank you!

Thank you for your support of our Book Fair! It was quite successful, despite being interrupted by snow days! A special project is in the works for the profits... look for more information on that soon!

Spring Book Give Away - March 19

We received a large book donation (almost 800 books!) from Book'Em. This book give away will work just like the one we did right before Winter Break. There will be two classes coming in every 15 minutes, from 9:30-12:00, and from 12:30-2:45. A schedule for it, based on the master schedule, will be attached to this email. Please check the schedule to see your assigned time. Students MUST have returned all their library books to be able to choose a free one to keep. Thanks!

Computer Lab

All broken headphones have been sent to surplus, and all spare working headphones and mice will be stored in the Library Workroom. If a set of headphones or a mouse stops working in the computer lab, please bring it by the library to exchange it so that the broken item can be sent to surplus. Thanks!
