2020 Summer Reading Commercial

Hoover Public Library Summer Reading Program

Hoover Public Library's Summer Reading Program

Imagine Your Story

Begins Friday, May 1st!

YES! Hoover Public library is still hosting summer reading this year! As you can imagine, things will look a little different. The library is only using the app Beanstack (no paper logs) to track minutes read, not pages read like in years past. There will still be prizes!

The focus is on fairytales, myths, fantasy, and titles that foster imagination. The Hoover library will be recommending titles that are on Libby(Sora) or Hoopla. Mrs. Northrup will send out age-appropriate collections for your child to read on myON that go along with the theme. The Hoover Library will also host special programs on its Facebook and Instagram pages.

To get all the information from HPL and clickable links - check this out! Hoover Library Summer Reading.

If you have any questions, please email our Librarian, Jennifer Northrup at

Gwin Student Insight Form for 2020-2021

The process for student class placement for the 2020-2021 academic year has begun at Gwin. Your child's teachers, the school counselor, and administrators will provide input in the decision for placement for your child for next school year. Your input is also very valuable to us.

We invite you to offer information using the form below to help with this process. Please note that this is not an opportunity to request a specific teacher or for specific classmates to be included in your child's class. We do, however, welcome you to share about positive or negative experiences in years past that may also assist our team in making the best choices possible to ensure that your child has a good year.

Please use the form linked below to provide feedback for our team if you choose. This is an optional task. This form is not required for our placement team to take your child's needs into special consideration, however, you are welcome to share your thoughts.
