Glenview Library Letter

September 18, 2014

Notes from the Library...

  • Library computers are available to students for AR, Imagine Learning, Raz Kids, or other programs that you need them to work on. You might consider asking them to take the AR quiz when they come to return the book, and then check out a new book before heading back. Or, send them with a note if you would like them to spend some time working on another program. Just indicate on the note what time they need to be back in your room.
  • Last call for library pockets! I think I gave a set to everyone that wanted them, but just in case I missed anyone, please let me know if you would like some. We have plenty.
  • Please remind students that if they have a question and I am teaching a class, they need to ask Ms. Mara.
  • Please email both me and Mara when you have a new student who needs a library card. or when you need books pulled on a topic. Thanks!

Responsible Reader

On Friday, please check your box for overdue notices to pass out to your students. Any students with overdue books will need to either return them or come in to the library with the book to renew it if they are still reading it. On October 1, I will distribute stickers for all students in good standing. They will then be able to check out books from the "new books" cart. Please help motivate your students to take good care of their books and cards so they can have access to the newest books. Hopefully this incentive will help alleviate book damage and loss in our collection.

The Dewey Club

  • This club is open to all first through fourth grade students. To join, students may stop by the Library to pick up a booklet.
  • They will need to read one book in each of the 10 Dewey Decimal categories, plus one biography, and keep track of it using the booklet.
  • For each book, they will record the title, author, call number, and two interesting facts learned. They will take the AR test if there is one.
  • Then, they students can turn in the booklet to join the club!
  • All students who complete the tasks will earn a free nonfiction book of their choice! They will also have their name and photo featured in a display.

Please tell your class about the Dewey Club. Any interested students can pick up a booklet any time they come to the library to check out books.

Limitless Libraries

Delivery began September 2! Request books, A/V materials, and curriculum kits that will be delivered right here to Glenview. Please try logging in (, account log in, employee ID #, and the password is 2014), and let me know if it does not work.
