September is Library Card Sign-up Month
A library card is one of the most important school supplies! Every student at LMES is issued a school library card. Parents, did you know that you can create a parent account and check out extra books? Stop by the Media Center and Mrs. Matney or Mrs. Bootle will be happy to help. Be sure to also support your local library by signing up your family for a public library card. You will have access to e-books, magazines, and DVDs in addition to print materials! Search their online catalogs and requests items to be held or visit your local branch today.

3-5 graders using our new iPod touches to find information
- Wash hands before reading a book (or books get dirty).
- Turn pages slowly from the upper right-hand corner (or books tear).
- Never dog-ear a page (or pages crease). Use a bookmark instead.
- Keep books in a special place at home so that books don't get lost.
- Keep books in a safe place protected from pets, small children, food, and liquids.
- Never draw or write in library books.
- Avoid ink spills and water damage by taking books home in a large ziplock bag that stays in your book bag.
- Don't try to repair books by yourself with tape or glue. Mrs. Matney and Mrs. Bootle have special supplies to fix damaged books.
