Library Media Center
A note from my laptop to yours
Our school has one book fair a year and in accordance with Ecuadorian law, a local bookstore, Libreria Studium assists us with the sale. We will have over 1800 books from prek-5th grade level as well as some Spanish and Spanish Adult books available from $5 to $15 with some more expensive Spanish books. This week promoted and answered questions about the book fair with all of the prek-5th grade students. For the week of November 10th, all of the students from Prek-5th grades will be visiting the library media center sometime Monday through Wednesday to peruse and select any books to purchase. Students will be able to either buy or reserve the books that they select.
Here is the basic information that I have shared with students this week:
WHAT: Book Fair (like a book store)
WHEN: Monday, Nov. 10th-Thursday, Nov. 13th and Friday, Nov. 14th 7:30 am-4:00 pm
WHERE: Elementary Library
WHO: Prek-5th grades
HOW MUCH: $5-15
BENEFIT: Our Library Media Center receives 30% of the total sales which then is used to purchase books for our students, parents, and staff to enjoy. It is definitely a win-win situation when we purchase books at the book fair!!
* There will not be any book checkouts or LMC classes during the week of the book fair.
* This is a book sale and not a book swap.
* There are a limited number of copies of books.
* The price of the books is written on the inside right corner of the book. The price is increased due to taxes and shipping and importation costs.
* Books can be purchased with cash, check or credit card. Facturas will be available.
* Students can bring money or put the books on reserve when they come for their visit.
* Books will be kept on reserve until the next day at 9 am and then the books are put back on the shelf.

Using Destiny Quest to help your 3rd-5th grade students get Just Right books
I have attached a PowerPoint with the directions and pictures to help you and your child find these books that will help them become better and better readers. Students will need to continue this process throughout the year to update their lists. I have asked them to check out and read at least one of their selected books every book checkout time. I appreciate your support and assistance in helping your child become their best reading self.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
