Library Notes...

  • 4th Nine Weeks Library Lesson Menu: Check out the new Library Lesson Menu for the 4th Nine Weeks (attached to this email)! I'd like to see every class at least once (but hopefully more!) each month. Sign up for any lessons listed on the menu, or let me know what else you'd like to collaborate on!
  • Check Outs: Check outs are up and that is great! In some cases, though, it seems to be our frequent visitors who are increasing that number. We love our frequent visitors and want them to keep coming to the library as often as they need to. We also want to make sure we are seeing all students. Please check with you students, and be sure to encourage those who haven't been here in awhile to stop in and check out some books! Thank you.
  • AR Reading Celebration: An update was emailed earlier today. Please encourage your students to take quizzes so they can earn an invitation to the celebration!
  • Social Media: Please like or follow the Glenview Library on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest. See below for links.
