Students will love bringing library books home in these new book bags for 2017-18. Kids in FDK-3 will use these to tote their book back and forth each week.
Thanks to the generosity of our parent community and students in support of the fall book fair, dozens of new books will be available for student circulation in the coming weeks!
The winter book fair will be held during the week of February 5-9, 2018. There will be a wide selection of different titles.

Important Library Rules (from Skoob, the Shelf Elf)
1.Keep your books clean and neat, away from all you drink and eat.
2.If you save your place stick a bookmark in that space.
3.Keep books safe and out of view from little ones and dogs that chew.
4.Return your books when they are due, so others can enjoy them too.
5.Use a shelf marker, you can't go wrong; put books back where they belong.
6.Turn pages with great care; leave them whole without a tear.
7.When in the library make this choice: always use your quiet voice.
