Library Lady Leak v 10

Did somebody say Book Fair?

I have always been excited when the book fair was at my school, but now I have a totally different perspective. EEEEKKK! I am keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well as I try to juggle classes, previews, and sales all at the same time. Here are some things to know for next week:

*The library will be closed for check-outs. Students can turn their books in if they like or they can keep them to read again until the week following the book fair.

*Thank you to those who have already signed up for a preview time. I know there are not many left so if you have not already signed up, please do.

*Kudos to the third grade classes for working with the kinder Buddy Classes in writing down their book wish list.

***PLEASE READ THIS***If your student has money to purchase books, please send them down during your ELT time so that I have only one grade level at a time in the library besides the class and preview class. If your student is pulled during the entire ELT time, please send them after 2:40 as I will then have only a preview class in the library at that time.

*I have ordered more Spanish titles that I am hoping will be here by the end of Monday, but no later than Tuesday.

*I have ordered some discount books that should be here no later than Tuesday.

*If you are a classroom teacher, your bin is located on the counters where you can leave your books from your wish list. If you are not a classroom teacher but would like a bin, please see Mrs. Struble.

Meeting a New Friend

Students tend to stick with the same genre or a series when they check out books so I decided to let them get to know new or different books from around the library. I chose books that had not been checked out in years and not surprisingly, many students in fourth and fifth grade checked out one of the books they met. They were surprised! It was fun and I will definitely do it again with another area of the library.
