A Letter from Ms. Ashley

“DO YOU MISS THE LIBRARY?
I really miss seeing your smiling faces and helping you find new books to read! The library sure has been quiet and empty since distance learning took over. What if I told you there is a way to stay connected with the library and your favorite librarian?…There IS! I’ve made a Google Classroom for our school library. This is where I’ll be sharing library news: reading challenges, online book fair information, new books, support for requesting library books, read-aloud videos…Everything library-related, all in one spot. PLEASE consider helping your student join my classroom so I can help support their love of reading and learning!”

Book Fairs are fundraisers for our school library- we benefit from each and every purchase! Funds raised are used to get new books and incentives for our library and classrooms. Please help support our school while fostering a love of reading for your student!

New Titles Added to the Library!

Our most popular book series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dog Man, are now complete! We had a few books get lost over the years that we needed to replace, and now we have the newest titles available for check out: “Dog Man – Grime and Punishment” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Deep End”.

I was even able to add to our biography section with some new books about Ruth Bader Ginsburg!

I used the money we earned from our Book Fair to purchase these new books – thank you so much for your support!
