Glenview Library Letter
April 11, 2014
School Library Month
- Brand new books--We have a cart full of brand new library books! They are being used as an incentive for Reading Bingo (participants will be among the first students who can check them out) but teachers also have first priority in checking out the new books. Stop by and take a look! Many of them are on subjects that have been requested throughout the year.

Select “Tennessee”, “Metro Nashville….” and your school and enter your credentials.
Please go ahead and try logging in and take a look around. Your username should already have been emailed to you, but if you don't have it just let me know and I can look it up. In most cases the username is the first letter of your first name, and then your last name. Passwords are simply "Password" unless you have already logged in and changed it.

Get Caught Reading
National Poetry Month
The Dewey Club
More students have picked up a Dewey Club booklet and are beginning to work their way through the nonfiction section! Please encourage your students who have started to see it through and finish!
Interest in Reading Bingo has grown as well! Kindergarten and first grade classes are welcome to fill in the cards as a whole class. Many of the stories you already use for read alouds will work.
