What's Going On in the Library?

Summer Reading at the Public Library

Stef Blankenship from the Oak Lawn Branch of the Cranston Public Library visited our school this month to share details on this year's Summer Reading Program, which has the same theme as Reading Week: "Build a Better World."

I can't recommend the Summer Reading Program enough ... lots of fun events, a wide range of activities, prizes, and AIR CONDITIONING. A nice component of the program this year is that for every completed reading record received, $1 or one book will be donated to Books Are Wings.

Registration opens on Thursday, June 22 (the last day of school). This year, you can even register online.

Your student should have brought home a brochure with a list of programs. You can also get more information at the Cranston Public Library site.

E-Book Options for Summer Reading

Did you know that even though the school library is closed over the summer, we have e-book options that are available 24/7? They include Tumblebooks and Follett Shelf through the RILINK consortium, World Book Online via AskRI.org, and e-books and audiobooks from the public library.

Go to the e-book resources page for links and passwords.
