AC Library Media Center
A Note from My Laptop to Yours
A whole week devoted to reading and books sounds like my idea of paradise. For the week of April 7th, Academia Cotopaxi will be celebrating reading and books in a big way. There will be a book swap for prek-5th grades, guest readers, visiting authors, an assembly, a family event and more. If you would like to learn more, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also want to let you know about the upcoming HALF PRICE ONE DAY BOOK SALE. On April 24th, the day for self-directed parent conferences, there will be a sale of new books in the library for half off the book fair price. We will also have a $1 raffle for a basket of books and goodies. Please come by to stock up on you and your child's reading material. All the proceeds will go to the Library Media prize fund.
A highlight of this month's newsletter are the books that have made a difference in staff and teacher's lives. I hope you will take a moment to look at the list and think about a book or books that have touched your life in some way. It might make for some interesting road trip conversation with your family as well.
Best wishes for a safe and fun-filled holiday,
Jennifer Gibson-Millis a.k.a. Mrs. G-M

PREK-5TH GRADE BOOK SWAP
We also encourage donations since some students might not be able to bring a book to donate. These donations will provide "tickets" for other students who do not bring books. We will NOT be taking money for books. It is not a fund raiser. Students will receive their tickets and will be choosing their book(s) during their Library Media Class during Reading Week. April 7th through 11th. Please email Mrs. Gibson-Millis at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
