Literary Pumpkin Patch
One Extra Book Per Student Over Thanksgiving Break
PreK might have 1-3 books.
K-2 might have 3 books and
3-5 might have 4 books.
They do need to have a clear account (no overdues) for this privilege. We don't charge fines for late books but we do need students to return overdue books before checking out new titles. The best idea? Keep them in backpacks or bookboxes at school when not actively reading!
But with Electronic Library Resources Students Could ALWAYS Have FIVE EXTRA BOOKS!

I know I promised a little video made sort of showing you how that is done. I've made it about five times already and then deleted it before uploading because there was something about it I wanted to change. Soon I'll get a version I can live with up! Watch the Harmony Hills ES Library FB page for when the video is posted!
If you as a parent would like to check out library materials (either print or electronic) please fill out this link and Ms. Oliverson will be in touch.
A Huge Thanks to a Special Volunteer
From Oct 2-Oct 27 we circulated 2737 items. That's actually a low number ... usually it's much higher but one of those weeks was bookfair where that was all that got done!
We had over 40 storytime type visits, over 30 class checkouts, and over 50 kids visit on passes. There were several tech lessons on Biblionasium and several read alouds to older grades as well. I'd love to see all those numbers grow even larger next month ... with TWO weeks off!
Last but Not Least ... the movie for the book WONDER comes out just before the Thanksgiving Break.
If YOU haven't read the book, though, I would highly recommend it. Talk about it with your kids as most of grades 4 through 5 have read it, and many of grade 3. Aask them what it means to Choose Kind.
The book is a tear jerker and the "word on the street" is ... the move is as well.
