Library Leaflet

What's happening @ our Library?

April 29, 2022 Edition

School Library Month has come to a close. We are wrapping up our library time.

During the month of April, we had online activities for all to participate in. Some students shared their "library love" on Flipgrid. There are author videos about the love of reading, books, and libraries. We had a joke for each day of National Library Week presented by our Library Secret Service club, and we had/have a community Stick Together Poster.

Please check out the activities on the library website if you haven't yet. There is still time for us to complete the Stick Together poster before the end of April. Currently, we have less than 900 stickers to go.

In this issue of our Library Leaflet you will find:

  • Poster for School Library Month (links still active)
  • Video: Stories from the Pandemic (written by children around the world, read by authors)
  • 808Reads challenge updates
  • SORA ebooks
  • Library books are due May 6th. Video: Top 10 Places Library Books Hide

Wishing you all a wonderful May and end of year.

With Aloha,

Mrs. Sanico
