BOOK CHARACTER DAY IS ON MARCH 5th - TIME TO PLAN THE COSTUME!

Welcoming Mother Tongue Language Guest Readers:

We really enjoyed welcoming parent and staff guest readers last year to Bradbury Library. Parents and staff members shared a book in their Mother Tongue. We will continue welcoming parents and staff to visit the library during Y1-3 lunch, especially March 2nd-13th. Please email librarian@mybradburyschool.com Remember that you are welcome to bring your own books to share or use library mother tongue language books as available.

Borrowing:

The Bradbury Library is loaning Y2-Y6 5 books at a time. Please discuss this with your child. We do not want children carrying too many heavy books in their bags. Children do not have to borrow 5 books, they may choose how many they borrow. Y1 student now are borrowing 2 books.

Keep up with the NEWS!

For Years 4-6, Bradbury Library has The Student Standard newspaper copies for students to read, research, and use! Send your child in to get their copy to keep. We receive new copies twice a week, available until we run out!

Your turn parents!

Parents are welcome to borrow up to 10 books at a time for a month at a time from the library! Please come visit!

BOOK EXCHANGE IN THE LIBRARY!

The Bradbury Library is running a special second-hand book exchange area for students to use.

Do your children have too many books on their shelves? Would you like to make room for new ones? Perhaps take time with your children to think about clearing out books they have grown out of or no longer enjoy, send your children to the library with the books to swap them!


Volunteers are still needed in Bradbury School Library:

The library needs numerous volunteers to support adding hundreds of new books to the library and additionally help shelving the 500 books per day that are returned by students and staff. We would appreciate support of volunteers who could provide 15-30 minutes of their time before or after they volunteer in the classroom in addition to volunteers who are willing to volunteer for 1-2 hours per day. We would provide volunteers with training and would appreciate any support provided. Thank you!
