Keep Kids Reading All Summer!

Audiobooks has a terrific FREE program to keep kids reading all summer. It says it's for 13 and up but we have precocious readers here so I recommend it for all, teacher included. The books are matched nonfiction and fiction with similar themes. The books are only available for one week each so kids need to check the site weekly. Check it out!

Don't forget to email me your All Star IT number for renewal so you won't be harrassed all summer with emails from the IT folks.

Just want to say....

Thanks to everyone who came out for Quidditch. Erick and I shared the vision to create this first match but without his Harry Potter Club and his researching how to play (without defying gravity) and coaching the kids, it could have never happened. Plus the benefits of having long lost and newly lost materials returned was terrific. I've had books turn up that had been out since 2014! Look for more Quidditch in the future.

LOOK FOR SIGNUP FORMS IN YOUR MAILBOX FOR ALL STUDENTS FROM THE NASHVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY FOR THEIR SUMMER READING PROGRAM! (wow, that's a lot of prepositions)
