Our Reading Club has reached 250 nights! The last day to hand in your forms is Monday, June 20th. Students will be recognized at our assembly on June 28th. All those staff and students who completed 250 nights will be able to put their name in a school library book next week. I will let teachers know when their students can come to the library and pick a book.
Don’t forget to join the summer reading club at the Burnaby Public Library and at libraries across BC. Registration is now open. Click here for more details.

Read my earlier post, Summer Reading, for reading recommendations and more.
Last week students visited the library for their last storytime and book exchange of the year. We read the Thank you book by Mo Willems. This is the last book in the well loved Elephant and Piggie series. We will miss Piggie and Gerald, but I’m sure they’ll remain among the most popular of books to check out of the library. As a response to the book, students were invited to write a thank you to someone on a post it note and put it in the hallway. We wanted to create a “Thank-o-rama” for all to see! Come and have a look at some of the wonderful thank you’s that students and staff have written. If you want to leave your own thank you note, you are more than welcome!
As the library begins the inventory process this year it is very helpful to have all books returned. The due date was June 13th so please check at home if you have any overdue books or maybe even in your desk or classroom.
