Bluebonnet Books

Our Bluebonnet reading program ended January 27th with students voting for their favorite book. Students who read at least 5 of the Bluebonnet books were invited to the voting party in which there were voting booths equipped with iPads, voting stickers, and door prizes. Out of the 20 books nominated this year, students chose The Chicken Squad by Doreen Cronin as their favorite!

Book Fair

The book fair will be held in our library from February 27th-March 3rd. The library will be "closed" that week meaning no lessons or check-outs. However, feel free to bring your class by during your normal library time to take a look through the book fair.

TEACHERS: Save the date for Friday, February 27th- the library will be CLOSED a majority of the day to set up but stop by after dismissal for your teacher preview in which you can look through the selection and create a wish list for your classroom.

If you know of any parents who would be willing to volunteer for the book fair, please e-mail me their information. Thank you!

To make things convenient for families, we will also have our book fair online. We now have a book fair app and website. The site listed below will open on February 19th and will include extra books and materials that are not available at our campus book fair. Please promote this to your parents and students!

Book Suggestions

Have you ever e-mailed me asking if you can check-out a certain book and we don't have it in our library? Now on the library website you can make suggestions as to which books you would like to see/need in our library! Just click on the link on the K-6 library web page and fill out the form. I will review the entries when I purchase in October and in January. If our supplier has the book you've requested, I'll purchase it to put in our library.
