It's Wednesday! What's happening in the Sommer Library?

Last week, we continued lessons on exploring the databases with third and fourth grade, a review of the nonfiction section with fifth grade, and read a biography of Golda Meir with our kindergarteners!

During school pictures in the library on Friday, Ms. Margocs brought the library to the classrooms! Mrs. Larson caught our librarian in action:

We had a WONDERFUL author visit with Chris Barton on Monday morning.  Third and fourth grades learned more about the writing process, and how Mr. Barton gets his ideas for books.  My favorite advice from the author is his reason for writing nonfiction stories:

Speaking of writers, our first graders have been writing books on citizenship for our library collection! They share ways we can all be good citizens in school by following expectations and being kind to others.

The first group of the fifth grade Book Lunch Bunch met on Monday!  Ms. Margocs will be emailing the next three groups this week with dates for their meetings.

Have you seen the posters in the halls?  Heard Ms. Margocs and Ms. Woodul talk about the BIG EVENT next week?  Yes, it's BOOK FAIR time in our library starting October 10th!  Parents can shop during conference day on Monday, and students can drop by to shop starting Tuesday morning. We will be open until 4pm each day--and until 6pm on Friday, followed by PTA Movie Night.  
Please visit our book fair to buy some great books and support our library program!  Proceeds from the fair pay for author visits, database subscriptions, Bluebonnet Breakfast, and books for the library.

The library will be closed for checkout during the Book Fair next week; we hope to see all of our students as they shop for books to add to their home library.


  1. Nicely done. Informative. Love Ya, Dad.
