Library Happenings

February

VOTING DAY WAS FUN!!!!!!

A huge THANK YOU for supporting Bluebonnet and 2x2 Book voting celebrations! Ms. Fox and I were thrilled to host 514 big and little readers over the past week to vote for their favorite book. It was an absolute joy!


I know many of you took pictures of the book races and voting fun. If you'd like to tag the Purefoy Library should you post any of the pictures to Twitter PLEASE do so!


Thanks so much for your help and support!!

Random but true library information and dates to remember...

1. Please remind parents and students that Six Flags reading logs are due February 18!! Please keep the logs in a safe spot in your room until this date. I'll send information for turning them into me after the 19th. Late reading logs will not be accepted. :|


2. 3rd-5th grade student notices for books more than 45 days overdue are run on the first Wednesday of each month for you to place in Thursday folders. K-2 student notices for books more than 45 days overdue are run on the second Wednesday of each month for you to place in Thursday folders. Parents are also emailed 3 times for overdue notification. If you ever have a parent or student inquiring on their book status, please let us know and we'll happily help out!


3. Did you know that students in grades 3-5 had the opportunity to sign up for Book Club? It's true! Students who participate get to eat lunch in the library and discuss their book club selection. Super fun! I'll place reminder notes in your boxes to give to students on the weeks we meet.


4. It hasn't really worked out at all for me to come to your planning sessions with Liz. So, if each team is amiable, I could start coming to your Tuesday afternoon planning sessions on a rotating basis beginning February 2nd. I'll be a silent participant!


5. May the OverDrive Be With You is next Wednesday, February 3. An Outlook calendar appointment has been sent for your convenience! Ms. Phillips and I are excited to share the force of e-books with your readers.


6. PLEASE do not forget to offer your feedback on the buddy reading scavenger hunt by Wednesday, February 3rd.
