The BEST Library News

Information for our school community

Greetings to all!

Dear Parents,

At our library, I am working to create a sense of community and collaboration. I want our students to see the library as their own. Part of that is taking good care of the books they check out. Please help your child to be a responsible book borrower. They should always know where their book is. Books are due weekly.

Don't forget to ask your child about Storia. Teachers give access to their students and they have access to over 2000 ebooks both at home and at school on computers, tablets, phones. The link is right here on the library webpage and students have a class code and password.

Thanks for reading this newsletter!

Monthly LIbrary nights!!

Once a month, the library will be open from 5-6:30. For February, library night is on the 10th. On those nights, we will have a story to share, a simple snack, a special craft that corresponds to the theme of the book.

We had fun in January reading Stranger in the Woods and creating a beautiful winter scene and making coffee filter snowflakes.

Please try to come this month and be on time so that you don't miss anything. We begin between 5-5:15 promptly.

Do you have a 4th grader?

Fourth grade is participating in Houston Rockets Read Nation. Please help them keep track of their daily reading minutes this month. There will be prizes! All reading occurs from Feb. 1-29.

Book Swap Fridays

If your child has some of their own books at home that they would like to trade in, they can bring them in on Fridays. They may trade them for books on my book swap cart. They can do this every Friday and they may keep these books or trade them in the next week.

For Future Planning

Consider attending The Bookworm Festival on Saturday February 6th at 9:30 -11:30. It will be a great chance to meet authors and illustrators of books for elementary readers!
