The Newsletter of the Findley Oaks Media Center
The Power of Pleasure Reading
A love of reading continues to grow with students across the grades as they have opportunities to come to the media center independently and in small groups to explore the collection and curl up with a good book. Students checked out about 5,000 books this past month. Pre-K and Kindergarten students may borrow one book at a time, while checkout limits are expanded to three for students in 2nd through 5th grades. You can play a role in your child's exploration of the book collection by asking them what they select to read and why. Encourage the enthusiasm they have for the books they have selected--student interest in a book plays a key role in developing a love of reading. Take it a step further and suggest that you read one of the books together and talk about it!
Reading options for students aren't limited to our print collection in the media center. We also offer access to more than 800 eBooks and to the Web sites BookFlix and Tumblebooks with additional titles. Students may borrow two eBooks at a time, in addition to the print books on loan from the media center. Follow the directions below to use these resources either on a computer or mobile device, including phones and tablets.
