We’re Back!

The library is open, and students are back to visiting daily! We are enjoying getting to know all of the classes, and helping the students find the perfect book for them.

We did some cleaning out of the library, and we are still in the process of doing some rearranging. We hope the students will enjoy all of the changes we make.

Be sure to check out our Pinterest and Instagram pages. We’ll be adding a Facebook page, too!

Summer Reading!

As our school year winds down, we start thinking about summer reading! Summer is a great time to try new genres, start a new series, or discover a new author. It’s important to avoid the summer slide. Keep reading to and with your children this summer.

If you’re looking for grade level suggestions, please check our Pinterest page for ideas! We have books by grade levels, and also by interest.

There are also many programs designed to help motivate our children over the summer. The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County has a great summer reading program for kids and adults! You can fill out a paper or electronic log to track your reading. They also have great suggestions for every age of reader, so be sure to look for those resources.

Scholastic also has an online summer reading program. You can register your child online

Keep reading this summer!

April is National Poetry Month!

This month, our library will celebrate National Poetry Month!

Our monthly response wall is up, and we are looking for poems written by our students.

We are also reading poems from Lunch Money by Carol Diggory Shields. The students love the poems because they can relate.

Scholastic has great suggestions and activities for families looking to celebrate! http://teacher.scholastic.com/poetry/
