Peak School Library e-book platform is up and running
There is no limit to number of titles borrowed but we ask the kids to be principled when selecting and not to take more than 2 at one time. It's an automatic return after 2 weeks - so no overdue notices - and the ebooks can be reserved if they are being read by someone else.
Some great new titles coming to the Library!
Scarlet & Ivy: The Lost Twin, by Sophie Cleverly
"I think anyone who doesn't get too scared by stalkers and the mysterious disappearances of girls, along with teachers who throw children off rooftops, will really really enjoy it."
Guardian children's books young reviewer
Listen, Slowly, by Thanhha Lai
"[with] a summer's-worth of touching and hilarious moments, grand adventure ... this compelling novel shows the lingering effects of war through generations and how the secrets our parents keep can shape us."
School Library Journal Review
Roller Girl, by Victoria Jamieson
"Full of charm and moxie—don’t let this one roll past."
Kirkus Book Review
Home, by Carson Ellis
“Where is your home?” she asks. “Where are you?”
Publisher's Weekly book review
Auggie & Me
"In all, I think this is a BRILLIANT book, and worth having, no matter your age, gender or anything. I rate it a FIRST TIME 10/10. It deserves all the praise it can get."
Kat Winter, Guardian children's books young reviewer
Sidewalk Flowers, by JonArno Lawson
"I’d give this book to anyone with a coffee table, in a household with or without children."
NYTimes Sunday Book Review
The King And The Sea
"These stories are so utterly abstract and charming, they will also enchant adults. Younger children will enjoy the abstract meaning via association, and older kids will also glean much wisdom and humour."
Kids' Book Review
The Thank You Book, by Mo Willems
In honour of the grand finale, we are ordering the entire collection for our students to enjoy in the Library.
... and many, many more fabulous literary and series fiction for middle grade readers as well as new picture books are on their way!
REMEMBERING LIBRARY DAYS
Want to get involved but don't know how? Wonder what exactly goes on the Library? Have a burning desire to sort things? Do you like good coffee?
We are looking for volunteers to come in after morning drop-off.
There are 2 main jobs that always need to be done:
1. Putting books back on the shelf alphabetically, or according to dewey decimal number. We need help on Thursday and Friday mornings.
2. Covering books with sticky back paper (we will show you how!) Tuesday mornings.
Drop in and we'll fuel you up on coffee (we do tea as well) and get you started!
