Lower School Library

News & Updates - May 15, 2017

Dear Families,

Below you'll find information about returning library books, volunteering in the library, book awards, and author events. This is a quick update to tide you over until the end of the month when I share loads of SUMMER READING resources!

Happy reading,


All books due Tuesday, May 23!

All Lower School families will receive library notices by email this Friday with a list of all of the books that your child currently has checked out. Please look for and return these books by next Tuesday, May 23.

If you believe you have already returned a book, please let Natalie know - we can search the shelves for you.

We will inventory the library collection from May 24 - June 1. This should help catch any books accidentally not checked in during the school year. After June 1, all books still checked out or overdue will be assessed the replacement cost fee. If your child still has books out, Natalie will contact you with further information at the beginning of June.

Help wanted!

If your child has been voraciously reading through our library, please consider donating an hour of your time to help get the books back on the shelves and ready for inventory!

Time slots are available most afternoons from 2-3pm and some mornings after settling in. Take a look at the sign up to see if you can help out!


Thanks in advance!

Forest and Mountain class students and teachers have been reading the 20 books nominated for our very own Forest & Mountain Reader's Choice Award all year long. Classes voted last week for their favorite book - and while there were tons of great books to choose from, Sisters was our very first winner!

We will be nominating books for next year's list this week, with the final list coming out in the last library newsletter of the year. Rising 2nd years can get a head start on this great reading program over the summer!

This Thursday 5/18 at Flyleaf Books - meet Hamster Princess author, Ursula Vernon!
