Monday, October 24th is BC School Libraries Day. To celebrate, we’re going to DEAR (Drop Everything And Read). At the beginning of each class on Monday, your teachers are going to read you an excerpt from one of this year’s Vikings Read selections.
Win a prize!
Did you hear all four story excerpts? After school Monday, or any time Tuesday or Wednesday, come to the library to enter a draw for a Chapters gift card. All you have to do is fill out an entry form with the title and author for each book, and which block each was read in.
Library Club: The library club groups and schedule assignments have been posted in the library. There will be meetings at lunch for the different crews as follows: Shelvers and Circulation Desk helpers Tuesday Oct 11th; Decorators and Book Reviewers/Bloggers Thursday Oct 13th; Vikings Talk/Read Friday Oct 14.
Happy New (school) Year! The library is open, and book circulation will start September 14th. Come in and check out a new book, or check out the changes we’ve made to the space (it’s a work in progress). Also, look at the new colouring poster we’ve got:Come in, relax, colour a Storm Trooper.
This is a reminder that everyone needs to return all library materials for the end of the year. All student library books need to be in by June 10th, and all staff books should be returned by June 17th. Remember, if you don’t return books or pay for the lost ones, your yearbook and final report card can be withheld. So, if you’ve been getting overdue notices and ignoring them, now’s the time to find and return your books. The next set of overdue notices will be going out the week of May 30th.
Attention Harry Potter fans: the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will be doing a Harry Potter in Concert show this July. They’ll be showing the movie while playing the whole score live. It’s the Canadian premiere and it looks awesome. More info and tickets are available here. They’re going to be doing the whole movie series like this, and they have student pricing for tickets.
It’s time! Join us in the library at lunch on Wednesday, May 25th, for the big reveal of this year’s Vikings Read winner. Which book will it be? Come find out. And eat cake.
May the 4th be with you.(and of course, look out for Revenge of the Fifth tomorrow) After AP exams are done, you can check out one of the variety of Star Wars-related books and DVDs that we have.
