Welcome back everyone. Hope that you had a great summer and enjoy lots of great books. I’m looking forward to seeing you in library this week. Did you participate in the Summer Reading Club at the public library?
Your new teacher-librarian
The Scholastics Book Fair will be coming in early February!
The Book Fair will be opened during the following dates and times:
Tuesday, February 2 — 8:30a-9:00a, 12:30p-1:00p, 3:00p-3:30p
Wednesday, February 3 — 8:30a-9:00a, 12:30p-1:00p, 3:00p-3:30p
Thursday, February 4 — 8:30a-9:00a, 12:30p-1:00p (closed after 1:00pm)
Winter break is coming soon. Please remember to return your books on time. Everyone will get a green printout reminding them of all the books they have on their library accounts.
We are so happy that you love your book so much that you don’t want to let it go, but please remember that other boys and girls may be waiting for their turn to read that book too. You can renew a book once if there is a waitlist for the book and you can renew the book multiple times if there isn’t a waitlist, but you need to bring the book back to the library in order to have it renewed.
We want everyone to have a chance to read the new and popular books, so there won’t be any disappointed children.
I hope everyone has received their new Home Reading Club booklets. Ms. Brown will go over the instructions with you next week when you visit her in the library. Don’t forget to record each day you read!

El Deafo was one of our Battle of the Books titles for this year. Click on the video clip for more information about it. Please see Ms. Brown in the library if you’d like to borrow this funny and inspiring book about Cece Bell’s struggles growing up.
